The patented drill attachment that easily converts cordless, electric and pneumatic drills into blind rivet guns. This innovative new tool allows operators to set up to 14 rivets per minute - twice as many as can be set by standard hand tools. And the new RiveDrill™ is also ergonomically friendly, requiring just 6.6 pounds of pressure to operate, compared to 77.2 pounds required for hand tool operation.
The RiveDrill™ can be quickly inserted into a 3/8"-reversible power drill as any standard drill bit would and is able to set any standard blind rivet up to 3/16" aluminum. The shank of the rivet is expelled when the drill is operated in the "reverse" mode. (For cordless electric power drills, a minimum 12v battery is recommended.) Nosepieces for 1/8", 5/32" and 3/16" sizes are included.
