Finally found a riveter cheap!
« on: June 13, 2020, 11:18:07 AM »
Now I can gloat....
10$ for the flat (cardboard box)
3X riveter, air hammer, sped ratchet, 12 drivers  all CP
Haven't tried them, 1st thing I do is put air tool oil in them and let them soak! Although these are not as old as some of the other junk I buy, still need to oil them up so they are well lubricated.

You didn't get those cheap OG, you stole them. CP is supreme in air tools and even if they need resealing, it was a great grab.
VWs to D10s, I've fixed em.

air chisel: cheaply made, poor control the hitting power. 

riveter: well made, good control of the hits throttling of the trigger /valve. 3X has a range of rivets it drives, important especially in aircraft work.

Great score!

I've been taught, and only have done it the old fashioned way--with a ball peen hammer. Riveting in new blades on a sickle bar mower is a pain in the butt. Guess I've got an excuse to go find an air-powered riveter.

Really good score.  The rivet sets alone are worth $10 each.

I've got a pretty good collection of drivers going, instead of boxes that they came in, I drilled a 2 by 4 and organized them some.
