    Default Best rivet squeezer?

    Matco has several rivet squeezers. What have you guys used in your builds? I would prefer doing a rivet build so a squeezer is a must...

    Here is the link to Matco's

    Thoughts?

    Forget about the Matcos, they're too expensive, and will not work anyway.

    Either use Pook's bolt cutter method or get one of Plinker's fixtures.

    Bolt cutters work the best!

    Check out this thread cwtoyota rivet tool. If you are still stuck on the "store bought" squeezers try ebay. Just a thought. Jack

    izaakb,

    I remember when I first got started trying to build a parts kit gun. I had a lot of similar questions as yourself. Many of the guys on this board have been around for quite some time, and we begin to take some things for granted when explaining things. My advice, would be to take some of the guys advice above and do a search using some of the keywords that they used. i.e. boltcutters,hcpookie, rivets, etc. If you feel like the answers you got in this thread were a bit to vague, just do a search and you'll find what you need. Also, try out the advanced search button as it may be able to help you sort through some of the unwanted mess a little faster. Good luck!
