Thanks for all the replies. I will definitely purchase the air riveter from Zenith with the special heads. For the money it’s a no brain-er

I will still suggest you take the time to convert your rivet heads even if you buy the air rivet gun from zenith because you will also want at least 1 hand rivet gun. I have found 2 different threads on the rivet noses for guns I have and there may be more so they are not always interchangable. I have never found it necessary to heat the rivet noses to form them as a carbide burr does the job. I prefer the neico guns at about 50 dollars each and have never had a problem with the 2 I have. never had good luck with the harbor junk guns.

Thanks Dan. I was planning on looking at the two hand rivet guns that I currently have to see if they can be formed using your suggestion. I will google the neico and check it out.

Here is the Neiko rivet guns I use.
