J.L. Thomson Model 161 Rivet Setting Machine: Used & Works Well.
Don't let the "aged appearence" mislead you.
I have completed the project for wich I purchased this J L Thomson Model 161 Rivet Setting Machine. The Riveter, though perhaps unattractive, is in perfect working condition, and has been well lubricated and maintained. Included is a nearly new Anvil Number S-980-1 purchased form National Rivet & Mfg. Co. of Waupun, WI.
Though I do not know all the specifications for this machine, the rivets I was setting were 3/16" x 1 3/16" semi-tubular oval headed rivets.
A complete and original J L Thomson Manual for this machine is available on eBay for $50, by another seller.
This machine is presently secured to a pallet and is stored inside in Hastings, Michigan.
Price: Reduced form $700 to just $425.00! A tremendous value for buyer, a significant loss for me; but I no longer use the machine and need the dollars and the storage space.
