Rivnut Tool

Anybody have one that is just collecting dust and would like a new home?
Or
Want to let me borrow it and I'll return it with a $20 Starbucks card for your troubles?

I need to install a few M-8 and M-10 rivnuts.
I hate to spend $40+ for something I am going to use once.
Thanks,
Dave

Suit yourself. I have one I have had for 4 years and I dare say I use it way more than you ever will. I use tons of 1/4 20's. For aluminum it's great, the key is putting a dab of anti seize in the rivnut before screwing it on the tool.

I have the basic hand rivtnut tool in M8 you can borrow for free. Wouldn't recommend it for a big project, but it works just fine for installing them. PM your address if interested.

Why? I've been using a tool without anti-seize for a while...no problems.

I've only ever used a bolt. I tried to use a couple different tools and they sucked.

After struggling for a long time, I shucked out for the "big" rivnut tool from McMaster. Oh so very nice, especially for the big ones that hold the steering column on the bulkhead and hold on the heater bracket. It is twice the length of the little one shown from HF above (which sucks for doing even rivets).

M8 and M10 Rivnuts are big suckers and require a lot of force to set.... Get or rent the bigger tool for those, or if you have space use a bolt and wrenches.

All right Uncle Douglas, I bought the rivnut tool from Harbor Freight and it worked flawlessly, Thank you!

Anybody have a tool that will set M-10 rivnuts? Same offer, I'll mail the tool back with a $20 Starbucks card.

Cool. Happy to help. Like you I typically only buy consumables @ hf like gloves, small ratchet straps, sand blast abrasive, etc. The rivnut tool was a pleasant surprise.
