The “THIRD HAND RIVET TOOL” is your solution to accurate, affordable tubular rivet setting.

This hefty little guy is simple to use and will give consistent, professional results in a variety of repair, restoration and fabrication projects.

Uses include Tonka, Toys, Pinball, Vintage Bikes, Classic Cars, Metalwork, Jewelry and more. 

The “THIRD HAND RIVET TOOL” is the original tool of this design and has been sold since 2010.  Check out these great features to see why it remains the best choice:

• The “THIRD HAND RIVET TOOL” comes standard with two die drivers—a balanced and convenient T-handle driver that can be spun down in the tool for speed, and a compact hex head driver which provides more torque when needed and allows the tool to be used in tight spaces where the swing of the T-handle would strike the work. The threaded die drivers provide precise control while clinching the rivet—an important advantage when working with fragile materials that could easily be damaged using punch or pliers style rivet tools.

• The “THIRD HAND 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 “THIRD HAND RIVET TOOL” uses the same hardened-steel rivet squeezer dies found in professional rivet setting equipment. With the included dies it will neatly roll clinch 1/8” diameter tubular or semi-tubular rivets 1/8” to 1” long and up to 2-3/8” in from the edge of the work—perfect for Tonka and Pinball restoration. These high quality Hanson dies are reversible in the tool allowing you to install the rivet with the head inside or outside the work—whichever suits your application.

• As your needs change you can expand the range of your “THIRD HAND RIVET TOOL” simply by switching the dies. Additional squeezer dies are available from:

Important Note: Tubular and Semi-Tubular rivets larger than 1/8” diameter must be made of soft metal such as Aluminum or Copper. Attempting to set mild steel rivets larger than 1/8” diameter or any rivet made of hardened material will bend the frame on this and all similar tools. This tool is not suitable for solid rivets.
