    How to make rivet nut / insert riveting tool

    Made a riveting tool for rivet nuts.

    Design is very simple and costs we're about 5€



    Can be use with bare hands or with the hand drill.

    Here is improved version..




    Made different sized inserts to it from M10 bolts and M4, M5, M6 threaded rods.

    Drilled holes trough bolts.
    Pair has one bolt with 4mm hole, and other with M4 threaded rod.. 5mm hole, M5 threaded rod.. etc.

    Made these originally when i started to build a drilling guide / centering tool.
    Then i noticed that i could use these inserts with my riveter too. I would have made them anyway, now i got double use for them.

    Fixed original design replacing 5mm hole on the casing and M5 hole on the slide with M10 threads.

    Bolts are drilled in drill press. Made a M10 thread to thick plate, centered it with drill.
    Screwed M10 bolt to thread and then drilled pilot holes with pilot drill... after that i made desired hole trough bolt.
