I need to get a pneumatic gun. Mostly steel shank/alum body rivets.
My uncle use to have a PRG510 that worked great. These run about $250
new and the only ones on ebay recently were missing the rubber safety
Can anyone recommend other alternatives. EG, are Huck or Cherry
(avdel?) OK? Any recommendations on a forum or newsgroup for these?
I bought the less expensive of the two models sold by harbor
freight and, although it works, I'm less than completely happy
with it since about two thirds of the time it requires two cycles
to pop the rivit. Their more expensive model looks like a twin to
the gun that a friend bought at Northern Hydraulics and used to
build his airplane - and reported that it works quite well. He
bought his for about US$90 (my semi-satisfactory gun was on sale
for about US$70.)
It might be worth taking a pocket full of rivets and a
well-drilled plywood scrap with you when you go shopping so you
can try 'em out.
