The Right Tool For The Job!
This amazing, American-made air hammer is just the right tool for the job! Ordinary air hammers have too long a piston stroke for boatbuilding. That means that they hit the copper rivet too hard. Even with an adjustable regulator, the ordinary hammer hits the rivet hard enough to cripple (bend) the rivet shank in the wood. The rivet never really takes up (tightens) the wood being fastened together. The result? No joint strength, splitting the wood or leaking.
For a solid joint, the rivet must be hit with a sharp, quick, but light hammer blow that will head up the rivet properly without bending the shank or damaging the wood. And that's just what the small, but powerful, Bantam Air Hammer does...time after time.
Cuts Riveting Time By Up To 70%!
Best of all, with the Bantam Air Hammer you can cut your riveting time by as much as 70%! It's true...riveting time for a typical small boat, which used to take 12 hours of hammering by hand, is cut to just 3 hours with the time-saving Bantam Air Hammer!
Perfect For Close Quarters!
This hand-size tool, which measures only 5" long x 4-1/2" tall, lets you work in the tightest spaces. Anywhere you can put your fist, you can install a rivet with the compact Bantam Air Hammer.
