True, after shooting thousands of rivets at work I prefer to shoot them. My pneumatic squeezer won't do a -6.

I have no problem squeezing those.
Cleaveland has an exellent video explaing that if the gap is too narrow the squeezer will not apply any force.
On long rivets, for me it is a 2 step process, I will open-up the gap, sqeeuze the first part and thighten the gap for the final part.
