Compact Riveter Tool Review - I riveted the Zodiac primed and painted front seat panels before riveting the main spar reinforcing flange to the center spar. I sort of riveted myself into a corner. It was not possible to operate the Zenith hand riveter through the spar bolt access panel or under the seat bottom.
The new Arrow one hand riveter saved the day! The short handles fit into tight spaces and the stroke is adjustable - a nice feature. With this combined with a riveting wedge, you can go almost anywhere.
I added the Zenith concave feature to the nosepiece and rivet wedge with a carbide burr. Try one, you will love it. ModelRT187M. Larry Zepp, Zodiac N22LZ builder, Fort Wayne, IN
