    Default Tinman's / Tinsmith's Rivets and Punches - Collection

    An assortment of punches and rivets that may be just what someone was looking for.

    There are a few more bags of rivets not in the photos.

    I am hoping for $100 but may be dreaming!

    Ideally pick up from Seven Hills NSW or pay for freight.

    I could be interested in the steel and copper rivets and the river sets (punches).

    How many fall into that and sizes?

    Correct, they seal up the hole around the copper nail. I think they're called Roves.
