|Our hand rivet & dimpling tool is used for hand dimpling of skins and small parts and for hand riveting of parts, assemblies, and spars. This tool maintains alignment of the dies to each other, and insures proper alignment to the work surface for superior dimpling results over either rivet gun or free-hand dimpling methods.|
What a difference this tool makes. It made my job of fabricating a new panel with countersunk rivets an absolute joy to construct.
Not sure how you build an RV without one of these.
This tool is very simple to assemble and use on a flat tabletop. I was amazed how much improvement it was over a hand-held squeezer or hand-held pneumatic air hammer. It's fast and precise for repetitious dimpling work and prevents skin distortion.
No. This does not come with any dies.
We carry various rivet sets/dimple die sizes that you can use with this tool. As long as the shaft is 3/16" diameter on the dimple die/rivet set, it will work with this tool.
You use a hammer(dead blow or mallet) to dimple the sheet. You can use a rivet gun but you have to be very careful.
