    DIY Rivnut Tool



    Riveter for rivet nuts suitable for Num 3,4,5,6,8.
    Materials
    Flat bar 20x3mm
    Bolts/long nuts M12x1.75mm (If I remake it I will use M12x1.25mm)
    Small pieces of left over steel

    I havenít a lathe so I made the needed fittings using the same way
    that I had made the threaded insert for my angle grinder.

    Place/secure a piece of steel 30x30mm at my drill press
    Make an M12x1.75 threat
    And using the threat makes the needed fittings.

    Rive Nut Tool Plans

    Searching at my pc today for something I found a plan that I had made at 03.20.2017 that I had forgotten it.
    So I decided to make a quick video and uploaded. Perhaps could be useful for someone.
    It is two somewhat similar versions with M10 bolts/nuts for rive nuts from Num3~6 or using M12 bolts/nuts for Num3~8.
