I would like to make some new ramp flaps (or at least get a good cleaning of the old ones) and I wanted to get a few pros & cons for the following riveting options:
- Any experience with the pressless riveting kit from pinbits? Does it hold up with ramp flaps? This would be the most cost effective choice. http://www.pinbits.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=9&products_id=72&zenid=vei169n7fi40qm90vp0unieeq4
- What about this die set http://bayareaamusements.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=TL-DIE2X18&Category_Code=RVT&Product_Count=10
Can you use with a vice with this and press carefully?
- Finally should I just bit the bullet and buy a press? http://www.pinrestore.com/Riveting.html It is a bit pricey but I saw the one gweempose has and it is a real nice tool. But they are out of stock right now.
Also, what size length rivet do you buy for attaching ramp flaps?
Thanks in advance.
