Tubular Rivet Setter/Splash Tool


Available in one size only – OK, we get it, the photo on the right makes it look like we have two sizes – we don’t – one size only. It’s a weird photo thing! Our new batch of these is 4-1/4″ long and it’s tapered at the business end, from a 9/16″ shank diameter down to 3/8″ at the setting end – fits in tight spots!  Rivet Setting Tool for use with post rivets or tubular rivets (not for use with brass two-part rapid rivets – scroll down a bit for that tool).  Punch a hole in the leather, put the post rivet through, put the pin end of this tool in the throat of the rivet, give it a good whack with the mallet, and the end of the rivet splits into six flower petal sort of things, holds the leather quite well. These setting tools are hardened steel and have a long life span –
to make them last you MUST use a nylon or rawhide mallet – NEVER USE A STEEL HAMMER – and a cutting board/pounding pad. $16 each, USA shipping included.
