        Great for securing new snow shovel replacement blade
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The RT187M was very helpful in securing a new replacement edge onto my shovel, which was in need of a new shaving blade. The one handed operation of the RT187M made it easier in performing this task. Review Code: 1117

              Metal roof flashing/perimeter covers
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The RT87M was relatively easy to use for securing folded sheet metal junctions/corners. The only problem that I experienced was with the tools required hand spread. My girl hands are too small for single hand use. But... I was impressed with the overall quality/performance of this product.

                    Great tool for the price, Very straight forward to use
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My wife, who journals, was thrilled when we found her Smith Corona Classic-12 stashed in a closet. The typewriter was in perfect condition and still in the original plastic case, but when we closed the case the plastic hinge split. I used the Arrow RT197M Riveter to attach a new hinge. I had never used a riveter before. It was simple and straight forward and functioned perfectly.
