|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.|
Best $38 I ever spent. The tool is easy to use and far more controlled than whacking something with a hammer. All 16 rivets in my recent pad replacement job were given a PERFECT roll set w/ zero defects. The several impact type rivet set tools I have are definitely now retired.
Amazing tool it does with brake linings. Nice removed the rivet and fast replaced. Perfectly riveted by hand.
Excellent tool. Preferred over the hammer strike style.
My RAPCO BRAKE RIVET TOOL finally arrived yesterday (23 June 2020) after waiting nearly three months. It was packaged very well and looks great. A quality product. Cant wait for the weekend to finally use it. Thank you so much and keep up the good work. Cheers, Trev.
The Rapco RA825 rivet tool was used to remove and install the rivets used on Rapco RA66-105 Cleveland type brake linings used on a Cessna 172L. It was very easy to use at my hanger by hand without tools or a vise.
This tool worked perfectly, It is designed to mount in a vise, My Harbor freight vise worked great
Bought this to reline brakes on my 39 Dodge. This device is first class! Worked perfectly to press out the old rivets and then worked easily and flawlessly to install the new rivets and brake linings. I could not have expected it to work any better! A great product! American Made!
Weâve borrowed this tool before. Now we have one in our toolbox.
Iâm giving the 5 Stars for costumer service. I was very impressed on how fast the delivery was. I wonât be needing this for a while but everything was in the box. Great job.
Per the supplier: The RAPCO RA825 Rivet Tool is designed for tubular rivets that are 5/32" in shaft diameter. They have not actually been tested with 1/4" rivets. We only sell this rivet tool or the replacement anvil & punch for it.
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.
Yes this will work with both Cleveland and Rapco pads and rivets.
