    Question Marson PR26A Hand Riveter or substitute

    On Page 112 of the EX 2 Wing Manual, there is a suggestion that a Marson PR26A Hand Riveter will be required for use in tight spaces in wing construction. My online searching for such a tool, concludes it is no longer being offered for sale.

    Has anyone found a link to a supplier or suitable alternative riveter?

    Karaka,

    I could not locate a Marson puller as described in the manual. You will need to get in to tight spaces. There are some threads on the forum that address this.

    My solution was to get a used professional model (Cherry Max 704B) on eBay with the offset puller head. It did the trick! This is a great tool and I used it for all the Cherry rivets as it allowed me to hold all the pieces being joined perfectly in place while the puller did the work.

    I have subsequently found that although Marson does not offer this product, there is an identical riveter named as the PSP 26A Hand Riveter available from Hanson Rivet in California.
