Hand Riveter with Custom Machined Heads. Riveter Heads (changeable Nose Bushing piece).

ZENAIR Riveting System
ZENAIR blind (or pulled) rivets have been used to construct the all-metal Chris Heintz designs since the 1970s, and make riveting a quick and easy process! The ZENAIR riveting system forms the rivet head as the blind rivet is pulled, providing a low profile dome finish and high shear strength. Fast installation, simple tools and low cost make this a popular riveting system with homebuilders!

Note: The riveter is supplied with the custom machined heads, required for the Zenair blind rivets ((for use with Zenair blind rivets, sold separately)

We are using this riveter to pull rivets where our pneumatic riveter wont work as we build a Zenith CH-750 Experimental airplane. This riveter feels very well made. The handles have a solid feel that you dont get with less expensive ones at the big box hardware stores. I give it a 4 star rating because it takes a lot of finesse to get a consistent pull each time the handle is squeezed.

Q: Can you give me a list of both universal and countersunk heads that come with this hand puller?

This riveter is designed to be used with the Zenair specific 1/8" & 5/32" rivets. They are a special rivet, which look like countersunk rivets, but when pulled with this tool, they are round head. I could not find a countersunk rivet for this design rivet head. The rivet part #'s are 12-03709 & 12-03711.
