rivet tools for reattaching stack window

We have replaced the glass in our broken stack window and are ready to put it back onto our 1970 Airstream. I have ordered Olympic Rivets and a rivet gun from Inland RV in Corona CA. However we need to find a rivet shaver. I have called Home Depot and Lowes as well as looking on the Grizzly and Harbor Freight websites. Home Depot found me a tool to order for over $200. I heard there was a drimmel tool called a rivet shaver. Any ideas where to find an affordable way to polish the Olympic rivets after we get them installed with the rivet tool? We want them to match and look good.

Yes, contact Out the Door Mart, Colfax, NC. They will rent you one for the cost of the shaver. When it is returned you all but a small portion back. Otherwise you can use a file and round them off, but be careful.
