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.

Thank you José. By coincidence I have just posted a message to your workbench thread! :-)

I built this riveter some years ago and thought I had posted it here but I couldn't find traces of it so here it goes.
When I started to design it I thought I would be very happy if it would be able to produce more or less neat rows of rivets with and acceptably regular spacing.
The core of the project was going to be a sliding mechanism from a discarded and chopped old scanner.
As often happens, the design knew a lot more than the designer and started to lead and the designer to obey.
The series of photos show the result.It can make very precise rivet embossing on card, styrene and even brass. (I tried on 0,5mm (.020) brass and was a delight but brass is not Daniel friendly so I mostly use it on styrene or card.)
It is very easy to make new punches of the shape and size one wants and there is no need at all of special metal dies because the slefhealing mat does perfectly the job. As you can see in the photos, the embossing is pretty sharp.
It has special devices for embosing also rows of rivets in a circular line of any wanted diameter;  for embossing precise diagonal lines; using the movements of the crosstable it is very easy to get precise perpendicular rows of rivets; it can also CUT styrene circles or arches in any size and can also emboss hexagonal and square bolt heads.
All the photos are in my old Flickr to which I have lost access because my lonely brain cell has no idea of what was the password (so I also lost my Yahoo account and yes, I tried all password recovery options but no way out. Or, better said, no way in.) For that reason I doubt I will be able to post the photos here. But as a visitor to my own Flickr I can post here the link to the dedicate album with all the photos. Here it goes:
