Introducing the new Pintonka Rivet Tool — a comparable alternative to my popular “THIRD HAND RIVET TOOL” which has been the choice of Pinball and Tonka restorers since 2010.

The original “THIRD HAND RIVET TOOL” is sold out and is out of production until the Pony 3325 clamp is available again.

The Pintonka Rivet Tool was designed as a compact and affordable way to give your Pinball or Tonka projects a professional, factory-riveted look. Check out these great features to see why it remains the best choice for repair and restoration work:

• The Pintonka Rivet Tool comes standard with two die drivers — a balanced and convenient T-handle driver that can be spun in the tool for speed and a hex head driver that can be used in tight spaces where the swing of the T-handle would strike the work. These threaded die drivers provide precise control while clinching the rivet — an important advantage when working with fragile materials that could be damaged using a punch or pliers style rivet tool.

• The Pintonka Rivet Tool can be mounted to any surface giving you a welcome “third hand” during the assembly and riveting process. Bolt it upright on your workbench, screw it vertically or horizontally to a post, clamp it in a vise or use it handheld — whichever works best for the job. A reinforced mounting hole is there when you need it.

• The Pintonka Rivet Tool uses the same hardened-steel squeezer dies found on factory rivet setting machines. With the included die set it will neatly roll clinch 1/8” diameter aluminum, brass and mild steel tubular rivets 1/8” to 1” long and up to 2-3/4” in from the edge of the work. These high-quality dies from Hanson are reversible in the tool allowing you to install the rivet with the head inside or outside the work — whichever suits your application. Other clamp style rivet tools can’t do that.

The Pintonka Rivet Tool frame is formed from a solid piece of drop forged steel (not cast iron) and is the strongest of its type available. Although it’s slightly lighter in the hand and slightly lighter duty than my original tool it’s perfect for clinching the 1/8” diameter tubular rivets common in Pinball and Tonka restorations.

Please Note: Clamp style rivet tools are not suitable for stainless steel or other hardened rivets, solid rivets or tubular rivets with a diameter greater than 1/8”. Rivets must be accurately sized before squeezing as the tool can be damaged by attempts to smash down a rivet that is too long or too short for the work. The included instructions show how to correctly size a rivet to your project for perfect results every time. See the Instructions PDF here
