Great tool. Works just as described, and makes layout so easy. Just installed stabilizer strakes on a 421, and being able to line the rivets up easily and accurately whilst working overhead was a GREAT help. I got the smaller of the two sizes because it was easier to handle in the position I was working in, and it really helped. If you are not doing restricted locations, get the 20-hole version, if you are working in tight quarters, (like I was) then the 10 hole will probably suit you better.
I checked the accuracy of the line up holes and found them far out of tolerance for any kind of true metal work. For this price I would have expected better quality.
Well made. Does the job.
Works great and is usable where the 20-hole version is too large or clumsy. Mine seemed a bit stiff when brand-new, but a quick shot of WD40 made it work totally smooth and easy.
Just like the one I had back 20 yrs ago, they work great for pattern layout and a bunch of other uses. Every structures guy should make this one of their standard tools in their toolbox
perfect size, dont always need the 20 hole spacings
This is an invaluable tool that you will use both on your build as well as in the shop. Takes all the guess work and measurement out of rivet layouts as well as woodworking projects. Solid, smooth.
Per the vendor, when extended, the max distance they will be is 1 inch apart.
