Well, that gives an idea of what this riveter can.
I don't know where are the photos showing the cutting work but if I don't find them I'll make new ones and post here later.
The cutting tool is ab;e to cut big and small perfect circles in styrene. Well, not exactly cutting but, as we normaly do with styrene, scribing and one simply breaks it withg the hand. Still, a little sanding is sometimes needed.
De combination of the radial tool with the cross table makes possible to make, for example, all the rivets of a tender side without changing place of the amaterial and it gives perfect alaignement and angles.
The hexagonal bolts are done using a boilt head as die and a piece from an hexagonal key as punch.
I work in 1/35 and 1/32 scale, so thise rivets and bolts must be much bigger than for other scales. That means also a lot more of presure and tension in the material. Still, I've found no problems at all except finding small enough hexagonal keys and bolts. The ones you see in the photos are .028 but I am looking for smaller keys and bolts...if they exist.
