Custom Made Rivet Embossing Tool for Brass or Plastic

Make your own riveted parts for your brass or styrene models ! This custom made tool will do the job.

This is a sturdily built homemade tool. It has an adjustable guide to set the distance between the edge of the sheet and the rivet line. You can also adjust the height of the arm drop with a stop, for repeatable rivet size/depth. There is also a stop to hold the arm above the punch. The hammer arm has sufficient weight to emboss rivets in at least .020" brass sheet. You can use the edge of the die to space rivets, eyeball them, or attach a scale to the back of the guide.

Note the picture with some test freehand rivet impressions in a piece of .005" brass. This is a bit too thin and I would recommend using .010 - .015' sheet brass, or .020" styrene with this tool. Of course, you should experiment with the height of the hammer drop for the particular material you are using.

Shipping weight 3lbs, The arm extension has been removed for shipping , but is easily reattached.
