Don't panic. Once you get the VTS shaver, you will wonder why you weren't shaving years ago. Easy-schmeasy. Just remember to hold the shaver head steady with one hand while triggering the driver with the other. You'll be a pro in no time.

For anyone reading this thread within the state of NC, you can rent this rivet shaver from Out of Doors Mart for about $40. You will have to put down a hefty deposit, but you'll get it back.

I was lucky when my friend former AS tech decided he did not use any more he sold it to me with over 100 rivets for $75.00 but I told him any time he needed it he could use it. Shaved rivets hard to tell from buck rivets
