Default Girapow Cordless Electric Rivet Gun

Hereís a much less expensive alternative to the Milwaukee electric rivet gun. Has anybody tried one or something similar? If you watch the video, it's interesting how it spins to pull the rivet.

Default Milwaukee Rivet Puller

Been using the M12 for the last year on an S-21 project. It has performed well and the major components are complete-ie thousands of rivets pulled. It is a little heavy but I would not go back to the pneumatic puller. It is nice not having to drag a hose around!
Cheers

Default maybe...

...maybe you ought to try a Flexilla 1/4" air line; very light and ultra flexible.

Had no issues moving around with it. Then there is the almost instant setting of the rivet...

Tried a lightweight hose-still didnít like it-seemed it was always hung up on something in the shop-plus I really donít like the compressor noise.
Much prefer the battery.
