I bought a partially built kit It has six central pneumatic rivet guns but only one #4 head I need a #5 head all the ones I see are flat. Where do you buy round rivet heads.

Thanks Ron

You can make them yourself easily just by drilling out the heads!

If you make your own, (I did and it's not difficult) you will need to put the rivet nose piece in a vice, or something to hold it securely, and heat it until it's cherry red. After it cools put it in a drill vice and using a 3/8 " (I think) bit drill it out a little and then pull a few rivets on some scrap until you get the right depth. It took me several tries but once I was satisfied I put some Scotch bright on a wooden dowel and polished the inside where I had drilled. It works great.


Thanks every one for your comments I'll try to make one
