Power Riveter Brand Recommendations! Help!

Hey ya'll. We need to purchase, borrow, use a power rivet tool. Any of you out there have recommendations on a brand you like? We see several online and on eBay and want to get a good one. We're about to put all the interior pieces back in and DO NOT want to use a hand rivet tool for this. Thanks a lot, Erik.

U.S. Industrial Tool and Supply Company sells quality air tools to the aircraft industry. However, I've read on the forums that a much cheaper Harbor Freight rivet gun will last you at least long enough to finish a renovation.

Best Wishes,

Steve

Erik,
Are you talking bucking or pulling pop rivets?

Probably pop...interior panels go on after the exterior, so there is no access to the back to buck.

I think we have the Harbor Freight pneumatic rivet puller...it works fine. And the price was right...
