We make 2 types of Drop Riveter which are perfect for making rivet marks in sheet metal.
A very useful tool for the scratchbuilder to assist in their constructions.
Depending upon the size and thickness of your metal you can easily create a neat row of rivet marks all looking the same.
Just put a piece of tape around the bar so you are always dropping the weight from the same height each time.
The tip is made from hardened steel.
The rod is either aluminium or mild steel.
It comes with 3 spare replacement tips.
Just pull the old one out and super-glue the new one in place.
Another of those useful tools making your modelling and building much easier.
Materials used and tip holder colours may vary.
Comes in 2 styles
Type 1 for the thinner brass or nickel silver sheet.
Type 2 which has a heavier dropper suitable for thicker sheet.
Replacement Tips are also available.
The tips are very sharp.
Blunt them with a file a bit to suit the rivet size you're wanting to create.
