JHCC thanks for that I dont know why it wouldnt for me I even tried lots of swearing while doing it and it didnt help either Cheers Beaver PS I dont beleive my fingers are in any danger as they are not under where they can be crushed but a handle is on the list as the dies do get hot

Dave thats just it, you cant get rivets here unless you import them from England or you make them yourself so i did as I like making tooling and in the long term should pay for its self Cheers Beaver

Are you now the sole rivet maker in NZ? Looks like a shrude buisness plan to me!

Now if you make an ejector for tooling to sit one you'll be making them faster that your forge can heat your blanks!

great tooling, may suit a forging press more than a hammer but how to load faster and eject?

I have a larger version for making 3/4x4 inch rivets that goes in the press, mainly because the tooling needs about 350mm of travel I will have to post it here Cheers Beaver
