We have everything aircraft mechanics need for working with bucking-style solid aluminum and steel rivets. Our pneumatic rivet guns have a teasable, featherable trigger. That means it is finely-tuned and sensitive for precision control and installation of aircraft rivets. Plus, they have a lightweight, aluminum handle for comfort, and a hardened, precision-ground steel piston, cylinder, and spool valve for long life.
What Do the Xs Stand For?
Some people may mistakenly think the Xs in kits stand for how many rivet guns will include. But instead, it stands for how powerful the gun is. With each increase in number, you can expect the barrel of the gun to be slightly longer. These long barrel guns have longer strokes and heavier pistons. So the higher the number, the more powerful the gun is, and the fewer strokes per minute. While the 2x and 3x rivet guns can accommodate the same lengths of rivets, 4x and above accommodate different (longer) rivets. Depending on the project you're tackling, you may need to purchase rivet guns of different strengths. Fortunately, we have a wide variety of riveting kits available that range from 2x to 4x.
