Instructions

Choose the setter with a hole diameter slightly larger than the rivet being set. Sizes for #170 correspond with popular 8, 9 and 10 copper rivets. For other size rivets, use table below to determine proper size of #169 Rivet Setter. Push the rivet through the hole then turn the material over. Place burr on rivet, then use the rivet setting tool’s straight hole to drive the burr down tight against the material. Cut the rivet off close to the burr with side
or end nippers. Do not cut off flush with the burr, but leave about 1/16 of an inch above the burr. The hole on the side of the rivet setter can be used to dislodge any waste that is wedged into the tool. Place the concave recess of setter on the burr. Hold perpendicular and strike the tool forcefully, turning to the left then right as you strike. This spreads the end of the rivet over the burr, simultaneously rounding its end. A few extra blows from the soft faced mallet can be used to flatten the rivet end a bit, if desired.
