For the regular manual blind riveter, I got a new Pop brand riveter
from Brown Aviation and Aircraft Tools a while back. The Arrow swivel head had to be relegated to the scrap metal pile. I very much prefer the non swivel version.
For solid riveting, I have the solid rivet kit from VTS. Works great.
