Easy to use Rivet Gun for Making Strong Joints in a Variety of Materials
A rivet gun is a nice tool to have if you want a quick permanent fastening when you can only reach one side of the material. The fasteners are called rivets and they consist of a head on one end and a cylindrical shaft with a flat base. The fasteners are used in automobile chassis applications, airplane manufacturing, infrastructure projects and many more projects when you need a strong connection.
To use the rivet gun, the rivet is placed into the head of the gun and positioned exactly where you need the metal to be fastened. You have to pre-drill a hole on the metal or other material to be riveted. Once the trigger is pulled, air pressure created by the gun forces the rivet through the material. It is secured in place by the backer buck. A backer buck is placed behind the area and is used to compress the reverse side of the rivet.
