|Tungsten Steel bars weighs almost twice as much as conventional steel which makes it a perfect material for manufacturing a small yet HEAVY Bucking Bar. As you know, the heavier the bar, the easier it is to shoot your rivet. With conventional steel bucking bars, installing rivets in open areas has never been a problem, but when the rivet is in a confined space and the ability to use a heavy enough bar to properly install the rivet without work hardening is not possible, you can use our small yet heavy Tungsten Bucking Bars 2 lbs (1Kg) shipping weight.|
This is a great little bucking bar. Not sure why I’ve waited so long to purchase it other than cost. It’s definitely my first choice when bucking rivets in tight spaces.
ATS6008 ATS TUNGSTEN BUCKING BAR
Heavy bar, finishing is very well done no sharp edges anywhere. The size will be good to fit into tough spots. Still getting used to the smaller size than my normal tungsten but I have heard people using this bar as their standard issue and that may happen for me as well. If you need this size I would highly recommend this.
