|A high-quality tool designed for use in the installation and removal of tubular brass or steel brake lining rivets, 5/32 of an inch in diameter. Recognized by professionals, this screw type set allows controlled pressure for a proper flare. This reduces the chance of cracking not only the rivet but also of the lining material. It also helps avoid the costly warping of brake assembly back plates and pressure plates, often associated with using the hammer type method. The RAPCO rivet tool is designed to be mounted in a vise or can be handheld. Packaged in a reusable case the RA825 is a quality tool for a professional job. Maximum set travel 1 inch. Maximum working area 1 1/4 inch.|
Good price and tool works well
Easy to use and inexpensive device. Must have for owner of the aircraft.
Excellent product. Replaced my old tool.
The tool works great, changing the linings was the easiest part of the job.
Worked great, made the job easy. worth the money.
great tool,very fast delivery
Fantastic tool, worked perfectly! It removes the old rivet with the small removal punch dye, then remove that dye to expose the flaring punch. Insert the large anvil dye on the base, screw down the flaring punch, and the rivet seats perfectly. There were no instructions with the tool but YouTube had some videos on very similar tools that helped, even though those videos covered hammer type rivet tools.
Fantastic tool!!! Made in the USA!!! Gets the job done right!!!!
Easy to use. Simple, yet effective tool. I decided to get one, as I intend to keep my airplane for a while and expect to replace my linings a few times. Probably pays off after first use in comparison to have someone doing it for me.
Works as advertised. Does a good job, obviously very portable, but much easier if used in a vise.

Per supplier: Yes, the Rapco brake rivet tool will work with the 66-106 brake linings with standard 00200 rivets. It is the correct size anvil and punch.
This is made to be used with steel tubular rivets. If Matco brakes uses these type of rivets, then yes this should work.
It measures 1" wide, 4-1/8" tall, and 3" long.
