Hand press riveter arrived today! I ordered rivets too but I didn't realize you need to buy the caps seperately, I thought they would come together as a set but evidently they do not. Doh! Nevermind, I'm in no rush and I may prefer just to stitch anyway.
This riveter is a small type. That means that the pocket isn't so deep but I think this one is fine for my limited purposes. I had thought about just using a basic setting tool but I hear that it can literally be a bit hit or miss and I can't be bothered with that.
