    Default cwtoyota rivet tool

    I finally got my rivet tool from cwtoyota and tested it on the ak74 I am building. it works like a champ, the jaws fit nicely into the trunnion and it compresses the rivets perfectly, and it also works for the bottom rivets on the rear trunnion. At first the handles are hard to squeeze but once the rivet starts to move the rest is easy. He is making new jaws, not modifying the original ones and they are well machined and hardened. This is a very well thought out and well made tool, and a lot cheaper and smaller than a press and dies. He deserves a well done and 2 thumbs up for these!

    Default re:

    I emailed him and asked if it would work with RPK trunions but he hasnt emailed me back yet. Think it would? If you dont know, RPK trunions have a swell on the sides so i'm not sure if it would get around it.

    I talked to cw today......... for too damn long LOL.

    If this tool won't work with the bulged trunion then I'm sure that CW will be coming out with something that will. The bolt cutter jaws are adjustable so there is a good chance that they will work. I'm sure he'll chime in here and give you the correct answer.

    Hmmmmmmm........ why would someone from Weaponeer be talking to a guy that makes AK building tools? hint hint

    HCpookie,

    Was the original guy to make a set of these. He has a tutorial on his site how to do it yourself.

    For $35 his are a steal. I made my own and would'nt do it again to save the $20 bucks. His new ones with the CNC'd jaws ought to be dandy. I'm going nuts waiting for his flat bending jig to be done.
