This company has introduced its new Lobster Tools cordless rivet nut setter. The tool allows HVAC installers and general contractors the ability to set rivet nuts anywhere compressed air is not available, from off-line production applications to those that require the freedom of portability. The Model BN-200 uses a 12-volt rechargeable battery to set rivet nuts in Nos. 6, 8, 10, 5/16-inch and 3/8-inch sizes, plus metric sizes M3, M4, M5, M6, M8 and M10. The tool also features a stroke set nut, allowing the operator to control how far the fastener collapses, plus an auto reverse function that automatically engages as the tool is removed from the application. The portable setter comes packaged in a molded plastic carrying case with battery charger and screw mandrel size of choice.
