I'm scratch making clone armor out of storage container lids for my son and i want to rivot some parts together. What type of rivoter should I look for and where? Keep some what of a budget in mind.

You can usually pick up a basic pop rivoter at any hardware store, I work at a Home Hardware and bought mine there for about $20 canadian I think.

If you have a Harbor Freight store near you you can usually get tools like a pop rivet gun very cheap!!

Or you could barrow mine and I think I still have some rivets too!! I used a while back when I did my TK armor.

Thanks for all the info.
I just went ahead and bought one from Lowes $24 with some rivets but I kept the receipt. So I might take you up on that offer Rob.
