These tongs help you set wedge rivets into chainmail rings.
Yes, wedge rivets require more precision to set – yet the firm and historically accurate result is well worth it. Hence we conspired with our customers to design a tong that makes the rivet setting as smooth and easy as possible. And here it is: No more wobbling, no more slipping. Just riveting chainmail fun! 😉
How does it work? The tongs have a deep hole and a dent. The deep hole is for pushing the rivet through the ring. The dent is for crushing the protruding tip of the rivet.
This works fine for all wedge-shaped rivets on rings from 6mm to 8mm. The riveting tongs are handmade and tested by somebody who works with chainmail. Get yourself a good tool for good work!
The photos show it with the dark blacksmithing surface. The current batch however comes in a polished, bright finish.
