WTB: 2X Rivet Gun, Rivet Set, Bucking Bars, Palm Drill
Consider a 3X rivet gun instead. I have a 2X and found it marginal on a number of 1/8" rivets. Bought a 3X gun. You can always set the pressure lower on a 3X. I find the 3X better on 3/32" rivets as well, more mass, doesn't move around as much. Pressure reduced for 3/32" rivets.
After buying tungsten bucking bars, these are the only ones I'd spend money on.
I use my 18v Bosch battery drill almost exclusively. A 90 degree pneumatic drill (or mechanical adapter) is almost mandatory for various parts of the fuselage (but not the wings/empennage).
