Our students love the pneumatic pop riveting guns we got from Onkenhout for the two weeks. First letting them set a few blind rivets by hand make them smile much more showing them the advanced tool later... of course we have to set over 2000 rivets. In this short video Dave and Linda showed how the manual and the pneumatic action differs. Thanks to Onkenhout for helping us so much with the tools and of course for the pop rivets that we got from them.

Did you know that pop rivets are officially named blind rivets, the german company pop made them for the first time and become the market leader and eventually set the brand name for this sort of rivets.

So while every pop rivet is a blind rivet, not every blind rivet is actually from POP !
