My rivet press came and it was every bit as exciting as I thought it was going to be. I got right to installing the nipple rivets on the shorts I just finished.

I think those rivets make my jeans look very legit.

The rivet press is a little pricey for a tool that really only has one purpose for me, but I think it is definitely worth it. I have already spent so many hours installing rivets by hand and I plan on making jeans forever so I know it will get good use.

I had a hard time figuring out exactly what I needed to set nipple rivets, but I finally figured out that I needed the rivet press plus this die mold. Now I’m good to go.
