last weekend I made some pictures while Ralf worked with the tool:

The strip lies between two sheets of stainless steel. The lower has etched dies for the rivets heads, the upper etched holes to guide the needle. On this brass strip the position of the rivets is marked on the backside by etching and can be adjusted through the holes.

A pin vise with a needle is pressed down in every hole, then the strip will be moved for making the next rivets.  The last rivet fixes the strip at the right pitch. Needle tip should be a little bit rounded.

my "enhanced version" with clamped guides for plastic strip
