I have used one like it from Princess Auto. It works OK. Had to adjust it, to grab the rivet shaft but other than that no problems. A good feature of the design is when you are installing a rivet, you are pushing the rivet into the material for a tight fit, unlike the single hand squeeze ones.

I'll try to find the stuff locally.
I've used Casita and spoke to Victor.....no problems. Here's another place you might consider checking with......Little House Customs

Yeh, but you get Real Nice Leverage from the length. I'm happy with mine, though I will probably get a little gun for the small stuff.
