If you have just a few rivets to shave, there are other ways to do it, instead of using a shaver.

The shavers at this point cost over $200.00.

Thanks Andy, I do know the other ways, polishing the interior of 1955
Safari 13 panels to a mirror finish and want the new rivets to be perfect.

I don't know about that particular model but I bought a used one on ebay with new bits for $40.

I also bought a rivet remover tool and found it awkward and easier and more controlled to use the dimple and drill technique.

Either by hand with a file then smooth by sanding or a Dremel tool.

Both with more effort & less consistency than a rivet shaver ~ if you're only doing a couple, it's fine.

just buy the tool... I have pulled 300 rivets without making a dent in the total number needed to finish my project, you know how long it would take to use a dremel tool on all those? Good tools cost. $200 in nothing in the big picture. I tried to buy one from Vintage Trailer Supply, but they were out of stock. I ended up buying it from Byler Rivet Supply. They were great to deal with and had it out to me right away. Very glad I bought it..

I promise, you will be glad you bought it... The tool I bought was not ready to shave out of the box, it needed to have the depth fine tuned. If you buy from Byler make sure to mention the VAP, for they were/ are a contributor. They also have any rivet you can imagine and other tools. I passed on the nippers for trimming off the rivet center before shaving and feel it might have been another worth while thing to have, for it gets the shaft closer to the head than a regular nippers. Good luck and happy shaving

Just to put tools in perspective, I bought 3 new blades for my table saw yesterday, granted, they are professional woodworkers blades, but the cheap one set me back $138. I could have bought a similar type for $100 less at the orange box. Not the same quality, but similar. Good tools cost money... that is why Dewalt cost very little compaired to a Bosch. Thats why the tools at the orange box are cheaper than at the tool manufacturers stores.
