Dotco Rivet Miller Shaver

Hello. Has anyone used or seen this rivet shaver? I have a small number of 5/32 rivets to do, repairing a window hinge and I was wondering if this might do the job. Any input/advice is most welcome.

Thanks all. Warren

Marmite and Vegemite

Marmite man. I don' know about the rivet shaver but your name caught my attention. My long time neighbors are New Zealanders and introduced mr to Marmite and Vegemite years ago. I'ts an aquirred taste but I usually have some Vegemite every morning with toast. Marmite is harder to get here. Sorry about hijacking this thread so quickly.

Cheers,
Dan

I'm not familiar with it, but looks like it might work. But, why spend the money for just a few rivets. I had a couple of dozen to shave and just used my dremel tool. Be careful and take your time, but it'll do a nice job. If you don't have one, I'll bet a neighbor will loan you his.

rivets and marmite

Yes Dan. Marmite is an acquired taste. I grew up in England and still eat it every day. My kids too. Although my wife hates it.

And as for the rivets, George, can you describe to me what you did with the Dremel. I don't really know them that well. Did you just use a sanding disc or something special?

Thanks everyone who replied. Warren

Just used the small sanding disk and took my time. It's not perfect, but you'll never notice. Put a rivet some where other than the trailer and try one for practice, then decide.

hand shaving a rivet

Thanks George. I am going to do just that. Practice first, then try. Warren
