These are the only items that come with this set. Nothing else is included. The type of anvil that you get (cap or splash) is determined by the rivets that you purchase. If you don’t purchase any rivets we will send you a cap anvil. With this set you can only set Tubular Rivets.

With this option you get just the Handyman. No accessories, dies or attachments are included. Handyman only means, only the Handyman. Nothing else comes with it. It’s just the Handyman by itself. Nothing else.

    The Handyman Riverter has certainly earned it's name, "The Handyman"

    This is a very handy device. with the cutting guide, you can quickly change over from hole punching to riveting which is vital for making BioThane collars. I custom make them by hand (with the handyman) and sell at PetProMart on Etsy:

    You can also find them on

    This equipment saves me tons of time and punches holes centered and with precision. It makes a much cleaner punch than I was getting with the hand punching tool and the holes are always perfectly centered.

    I have struggled with perfect holes in Biothane for 5 years. Finally, I found a machine designed especially for this tough material. The company is great to work with, almost immediate response time and great products. I found the website when YouTube recommended them because my searches. It’s a great way to kick off my business for the new year.

    SO easy to use

    Posted by Banded Pines LLP on 4th Aug 2017

    We are in love with our new handyman press! We began using it right away and were blown away by how easy it was to set up and use and how incredibly effortlessly you press down the handle to cut the biothane that we are using. We love it so much that we now want to order the riveter attatchment. This has made our life so much easier compared to hand punching the biothane manually. If you want to cut down on production time...order this press! It is definitely a time saver.
