Exclamation New "Hand Operated Hydraulic Squeezer" from Cleaveland Tool

Anybody seen this? http://www.clevtool.blogspot.com/

Sorry, Mike, if I'm pre-empting you, but this looks like a winner to me...and it shows up on your blog!

It looks like it's not ready to go to market yet with still some more items to develop (incl. design??).

Mike, you're gonna have a line of folks wanting to buy this...assuming the price is right. Is this a pre-mature announcement? I hope not.

Get in line Don. This product has been anticipated by some of us for literally years. Can't wait to be one of the first to have it in hand.

OK...is this like Baskin-Robbins?

Who's giving out the numbers?

kind of funny. I've been emailing Mike at Cleaveland Tool for the past month puting together a tools order.

Mike pointed me to the new hand squeezer last week. I still want the original "C" squeezer but the hold up is the Intensifier, not the tools

Default Hotly anticipated

I have been waiting for a while. I also have a custom built "C" frame waiting for the HPRS DRDT head for dimpling and forming rivets too!

That small handheld squeezer is AWESOME! I'll be buying one for my company use, for sure! We manufacture some products using multiple rivets (non-aviation products) and this would be a great improvement over our "15-pound" handheld we are using now!

Put me down as a "me too." If the intent of this thread is to establish dibs order, be it known that I've been in line and firmly committed since before Oshkosh. Mike is my witness.

C'mon guys...no shoving or crowding. Double line forms to the right.

If you are building only one aircraft, figure the cost of each rivet that gets squeezed with this product and see if it fits your budget....... But maybe it will have a good resale value.
