How to use this tool: Punch holes in your leather, poke the rivet through. Put a burr (normal folks call this a washer) on the end, then put the hollow tube portion of the tool over the tip of the rivet, and pound it a couple of times with your rawhide or synthetic mallet to drive the washer down until tight. Cut off excess rivet with some wire cutters, then place tool dimple over the rivet end and pound it a few more times. Now, sit back and take a sip of that raspberry porter you mixed up back in late July when the berries were practically walking into the kitchen on their own.
