Rivet guns

Just thought I'd pass this along, was looking for a rivet gun on Harbor Freight website. They have two on sale now $49.99 was $100 and $26.99 was $50. For those of us just wanting to fix a couple of windows or minor job you can hardly afford not to buy one versus using a hand riveter. These are probably not top quality but for small fries like me it should last a lifetime. Happy riveting!

Is this air or hydraulic?

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Sioux makes really nice rivet guns, but they cost a bit more. More like $250 or so. The airplane guys like them.

Thanks for the tip though. These are a bit more affordable

I think I would get the $32.99 model (95173-3VGA). It looks identical to the $26.99 model, but has a lighter weight (3.7 lb) composite cylinder.

I've used the $26.99 model for thousands of pop rivets. It's really nice to hold the parts in position with your free hand and just give a quick pull of the trigger to set a rivet. It does get a little heavy (4.8lbs) when working all day.
