Default Anyone use the Boeing Anti-slip rivet set?

I was gifted recently with the Boeing Anti-Slip rivet set with the polyurethane ring. It seems to be the polyurethane stands proud of the face and wondering o how it would set a rivet nice and flush. Is it worth a shot or continue on with the norm?

I tried using one and didn't like it due to the amount of pressure required to compress the ring. If not compresses, it will pound the skin.

Our skins are likely thinner than Boeing's.

They are the best. I have two of different sizes, and it's really hard to do a rivet wrong with them. I have spare replacement polyurethane rings but have never needed to change them yet.

I think that's with the swivel type with the big red rubber ring. I think the OP is talking about these:

I think the swivel one, with the big rubber ring is completely unusable. I threw mine away in disgust.

I have one that looks like the one in your picture. It works great for me. No mods required!

Default Boing rivet set

I have a few of them and like them. But, as said, the rubber??? ring is a bit high. You can use a big rubber O-ring also as I have done when the Nitryl ring went bad.
Now for the proud ring. If you chuck the set up in an electric drill, turn on your scotch-bright wheel grinder you can smooth down the ring and polish the face of the set also. Gets the ring down flatter with the face of the set.
