Been talking to Brian, WTD, about Power Riveters. Just been into Lidl, France, and have bought one, plus air grinder, plus Air socket set.. Apparently, they are also in Lidl uk.. Excellent, and all work, very well. john

Very nice. They work by air? Does this mean one needs a compressor? (I don't need one but am interested how they work).

MG, yup, you need a compressor. Not a prob to me, as have 3. With my thumbs, etc, riveting was proving hard, and as i use a lot, twas a good find, Same with socket set, air driven, no need to use my strength. Grinder, for £12, was no brainer.
