Difference In Riveter Tools?
#1
I'm needing riveters to use with aluminum rivets to build tractors. I don't understand the difference between this one http://www.homedepot.com/p/Stanley-10-in.../203771504





And this one http://www.homedepot.com/p/Stanley-Right.../100488978



Looking at the store they look very similar in construction and size but one is painted.



Help!

Looks like the second one stores the bit in the handle like the one I have at work which is handy. But yeah they do look damn near identical. Different price?

Yes, the second one allows you to use different sized pop rivets, those thingies in the handle fit into the head and allow the use of different thickness of rivets.

We do have a snap on air riveter also. Huge time saver. If I remember right it was fairly reasonable too.

The 19.95 allows for different thickness mandrels meaning more range in rivet size.
