Operations & Features

  • Easy-to-use
  • No pre-heating of metal required when riveting, bending or rolling


 



Riveting is simply achieved by placing the material to be joined (with rivet in pre-punched hole) between the riveting posts on the machine. Use the lever to squeeze up the rivet to form a strong joint.
       

For the bending operation, material is placed between the square or diamond shaped former and the side rollers. Operate the lever to gradually bend to required angle.
       

Rolling is achieved by using the winding handle to drive the bar forwards and backwards through the rollers. As this is done with each pass, the long lever is used to gradually increase pressure to roll an ever tighter curve. End stop screw and nut fitted for producing consistent bends and circles/arcs when rolling.

 

To Weld or not to Weld?



Metalcraft's riveting system provides a safe, strong and authentic way of joining metalwork together for beginner and professional alike. Naturally, those with welding equipment may prefer to use this as a quick and convenient way to join formed metalwork together particularly in commercial use. It is no surprise that those able to weld easily spot the business diversification opportunities that Metalcraft tools offer.
