Default WTB: 2X Rivet Gun, Rivet Set, Bucking Bars, Palm Drill

Looking to see if anyone has some extras they'd like to sell....here's what I'm looking for....
  • 2X Rivet gun
  • Flush and cupped rivet sets
  • bucking bar or two
  • Palm Drill

Figured there might be some used stuff out there.

Thanks in advance!

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).

Got a 3X laying around that you want to sell?
