"To be honest, I have no complaints with my HF 3/16" pneumatic. It can be had for $40 all day long -20% (coupon)"

OK, I gotcha! For $40 vs $200+, you can afford to throw away a few HF units! Makes sense to me. :cheers:

I needed to add 8 threaded holes to the Sprite's body and decided it was finally time to get a rivnut tool. I went cheap since I won't be using it a lot and this one from Amazon won: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B081G ... UTF8&psc=1

Price and mandrel design* were my main criteria. I am not sure how I managed to make it through multiple car projects without owning one of these but I'm happy with it.

*I wanted something with a mandrel design that could be easily made on the lathe for either replacements or to add additional size options
