OK Riveter
28 Mar 2011
By MrAfixit

"I purchased this because I had need for blind rivets larger than my old pop-rivet gun could handle and I thought that the "twisting" head would be useful in awkward places.
But, although the gun works well, I was disappointed that I had to dismantle the head assembly after each rivet, in order to remove the rivet "tail".

Handy for tight spaces
24 May 2010

"The adjustable head is useful but the riveter seems to require more effort to set rivets than my old one and spent rivits do not seem to eject unless you tap in the fresh rivet lightly with a hammer, a bit of a pain when using it up a ladder as I was. Maybe it will free up with use.
The handles are far apart even when closed so it's a two handed job to use it. It covers a good range of rivit sizes though.

"This really is useless, I only managed to do one rivet and could not do a second.
The problem is the metal is to soft so the main pin bends and sides elongate. It might be OK on smaller rivets but the 4.8mm I was using was to much for it.
The twisting head would be useful if the riveter worked."

"This is an absolute piece of junk that lasted exactly 4 rivets before refusing to set anymore......... despite my best efforts. Maybe OK for DIY'ers but if it's to help earn your living forget it. I only used it because my son bought one and my original CK had broken after 18 years. Stay well clear."

Poor Tool - returned for refun
26 Apr 2012
By plati

"I had been using a very cheap pop rivet gun from Lidl. to replace the hinges in my UPVC windows. Coming towards the end of the job the riveter broke and I rushed to Screwfix and bought this one. I could not get enough leverage to snap the rivets so had to go and borrow another gun from a friend to finish the job. I think that the extended nose, which allows the gun to be twisted, reduces the effectiveness of the lever action. Anyway I returned the riveter next day and Screwfix promptly refunded my money and took it back into stock. It may be a very handy tool for small aluminium rivets but it woudn't look at 4mm rivets."
