This long-reach version of the popular 1/16" Crafted Findings riveting tool has a wider opening that will accommodate longer rivets; ideal for larger designs. The opening on this tool is 5mm larger than on the original riveting tool. Like the original tool, this handy riveting system easily pierces workpieces and sets semi-tubular rivets. Each semi-tubular rivet has a solid head that creates a finished look and a tubular end that is set by a flaring method to create a secure, clean and consistent cold connection.
First, a piercing tool on one end of the riveter creates a hole to accommodate the rivet. Then the semi-tubular rivet is added and the metal is pressed in the flaring tool on the other end to precisely and cleanly set the rivet. To set eyelets with this tool, you will need the 1/16" long-reach eyelet flaring accessory.
The interchangeable tool sets are all machined from heat-treated tool steel, giving them the strength to pierce non-ferrous material up to 12 gauge.
An eyelet flaring set, made specifically for this tool, is available. This system includes:
• One piercing base
• One Allen wrench
• Sample assortment of aluminum, brass, and copper rivets
