I figured I share this little find with you guys. Got this tool in today for riveting brake shoes and clutch plates. Has one pin for removal and peining pin. Itís stepped on the bottom so it will mount in a vice with out slipping. Hereís the good part. $16.95 plus shipping. Aircraft Tool Supply Company. Part #W403. www.aircraft-tool.com or989-739-1447

That's actually cheap.

Does that keyboard still work with all that overspray?

Tom, I run a metal fabricating facility here. The word clean on the shop floor level doesnít exist! Metal dust gets into every thing. Bob L

Thanks Robert!! I ordered one and it works great. Hey, how about fabricating some GOOD three piece fenders?
Thanks again,

I just ordered one. Should be perfect for our old brake linings and clutch faces. Thanks, Robert!

I bought mine 30 some years ago from Barnett Tool & Engineering.
Probably not quite the quality as this one looks, but mine has done at least 2 or 3 hundred jobs and is still good to go.

Who'd a thunk it? A computer with "patina"?

I grabbed one of those myself, even though I have an early model. Just had to own it I guess. Top quality it is though. Paps

thanks paps. i just ordered up 2 of them. i couldn't resist seeing how they are on sale for 12.95$. who knows, maybe a good friend might need one. any recomendation for a fender rivet tool as well? i have no clue on what kind of tool that it would take and i would like to start riveting my own fenders. thanks again, len.

Here is what you need to do the fender rivets:



Made up from some scrap steel bars, about 6 or 8 inches long. Left to right: the one has the shape of a shallow domed head for the fender's sheet metal rivets, done with a ball end mill, and the smaller hemispherical one is for the outsides of the fender brace rivets, and the one with the squared hole is for both of the inside ends.
Hold one tool in the vise, have a friend to help you hold the fender and all in place, and one of the other tools is applied with a hammer. 'With a little practice, works like a charm!

just finished putting my 45" clutch plate fiber on my clutch hub. turned out really well but i only have a couple of brass tubular rivets left(had plenty but through practice i used most of them). now i'm trying to hunt some more down for future projects. the rivets i need are #2485-12, 3/16" x 11/32". #2485-41, 3/16" x 9/32". #2485-41A, 3/16" x 7/32". can anybody please refer me to a place where i can pick some up and with part #s. rivets are confusing to me and a place with the #s would be so helpful. thanks to all, len.

thanks paps. i'm familiar with nos parts. i actually have to get some hardware from them. but the rivets from them are repops and i know somebody out there makes them where you can get bulk pricing. i just don't know where i can find them. i doing some searching but no luck yet. len.

any idea if the one with the handle and screw would do as good as the hammer one ?

Glenn, any thing other than a hammer is better. I have a lot of Chicago Motorcycle Supply vintage brake linings that are 60 plus years old and there’s nothing wrong with them but there a little brittle, its real east to crack one when you’re whacking with a primitive tool (Hammer). I use that tool in my shop press. I just stick a milling or drill press vise on it to hold the lower tooling and take my time. I’ll admit it’s much easier to have one of my boys doing the pumping so I have both hands free. I’m in the process of trying to rig something up in the press to do the fender rivets that Gerry mentioned earlier in this tread. A 50 ton shop press is a gift from the Gods. Bob L

thanks Bob
I did get the one from your supplier but the upgraded one instead of the hammer one
