Flow Forming Tool Set

Are you tired of hammering your flanges over or knocking them down flat? Hammering metal over a forming block or hemming an edge over can be both time-consuming and wear out your arm. Why not use a power tool instead? This little system is very handy and doesn’t beat up the metal. You’ll be very surprised to see how smoothly the metal shapes and how fast you can make parts when you’re using the right tool.- More Info -

Rivet Guns

We offer three rivet guns that can be used for Flow-Forming in addition to riveting. Each gun comes equipped with the accessories needed to use the gun with our long and short tools. We've used a lot of pneumatic hand tools over the decades, and a few types remain at the top of the list. Flow Forming requires a comfortable rivet gun that not only durable, but more importantly is easy to hang onto and control. We prefer and sell Taylor Pneumatic 4x and 5x guns, as well as rebuilt Cleco E5 guns for Flow-Forming. - More Info -
