Part# 10-02065
MFR Model# RA825


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.

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.

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.

If you are going to replace your brake pads donât do it without this tool. Took less than 15 minutes to remove the old pads and install the new ones. They look like factory new.

This tool works extremely well. Ive used an anvil/punch/hammer in the past and the results were poor. The finished rivet tail looks great using the RAPCO tool.

Works great, had my brake pads changed in minutes and the tool peens the rivet into perfect form.
