Crafted Findings Long Reach 1/16" Rivet Tool
This new riveting system is designed to pierce and set semi-tubular rivets. Semi-tubular rivets have a solid head that creates a finished look, and a tubular end that is set by a flaring method to create a secure, clean, and consistent connection. The opening on our Long Reach tool is .200" (5mm) larger than the standard tool to accommodate larger pieces. While the base components are the same size, punch components used with the standard size tool and long reach tool are NOT interchangeable.
The tool features a piercing tool on one end that creates the hole to accommodate the rivet. The other end is a flaring tool which precisely and cleanly sets the rivet.
This versatile tool base is also engineered to be interchangeable. As new sizes of piercing and flaring sets become available, they can be purchased separately and be quickly installed into the tool base, allowing you flexibility in one compact tool.
The interchangeable tool sets are all machined from heat treated tool steel, unlike many hand tools on the market which are made from softer metals and then case hardened. This is what gives our tool the strength and precision to perform as well as it does, allowing you to easily pierce through material thicker than 12 gauge (.080"/2.03mm).
*Includes rivet sample pack*
Note: Do not use this tool to pierce steel thicker than 22 gauge (.025"). As steel is such a hard material, attempting to pierce a greater thickness may result in damage to the tool.
