$40 for a air operated one saves time and your arms.

Stainless POP rivets will react that way if using a hand rivetter.
Could be that's what they were installing the panels with.

|pasadenahotrod||Most hand rivet tools have a small and large rivet "nail" nosepiece. The key to successful riveting is keep the flange of the rivet held solidly against the material while pulling the nail to "POP" it.|

How to use a Hand rivet tool
My rivet tool is a hand held swivel type and what is the correct way to use this tool? From very small rivets to maybe 1/2 inch! Thanks, Dana
