Yeah, two of them :roll: the story is that a guy on ebay was selling both & I was aware of how much these things cost so I was waching them patiently.

Then one got sold, offer accepted. The one with the broken 6mm tip, bah, my preferred choice. So I placed an offer for the 4mm tipped gun & he accepted. I then looked into the price of the tips which are 150 notes for a set :eek2 but whilst looking I spotted that the guy I bought the original 4mm gun had placed the other 6mm gun back on. So I placed an offer & the rest is history.

Two nut guns to for 18 rivits :oops: Nuts.

Cheers Chris :thumbup:

I've think I've worked it out that the rivnut/nutserts are 3/16 UNC for the end baffles on the Supertrapp exhausts & the only place on ebay is China, Australia & USA.

China's the cheapest so they're on the way a tenner I think for 150'ish of different sizes. The reason for purchasing the second gun is the 6mm anvil hole will hopefully cope with a 3/16 home made rivnt puller & 5mm as well. Well, thats what I've told the boss :D

The fans arrived today from China. They're quite deep but we'll see what's what when I finish ripping the house apart.

That's surely not the paint top coat, is it?
It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.
