    Ok, I just got a cheap rivet gun. I have never used one of these before but I DO know how to use them. Anyway, do the guns normally clip the stem of the rivet off? Or does one have to manually do this with a wire cutter or grinder?

    Thanks loungers

    Damnit, I knew I shouldnt have purchased this thing. Oh well It was only 2.99. I guess when I finish my 'project' I get to cut the stems off of about 200 rivets. I can feel the pain in my hands already.
