The BP-60c is one of the best riveting tools out there, and works great whether you are using a rivet nut or a nutsert. However, to increase the tool’s longevity it is important to make sure you are using the right stroke for every job. If you have your tool set to the incorrect stroke, you could double stroke your tool which might break the mandrel.
For those of you who have some questions about how to change the stroke on the BP-60c, here is an easy to follow guide.
How to Adjust the Stroke on Your BP-60c Rivet Nut Tool
- Ensure your anvil is set as close to the nose assembly as possible. In the low position, we have as many threads as possible showing. This is done by using your spanner wrench to loosen the lock nut, going to the lowest position, and putting the lock nut in place.
- Find the indicators on the top of the tool; this will tell you how many millimeters of stroke your riv nut tool is set to.
- Figure out what is the ideal stroke you need. (Most rivet nuts use between 1mm to 2mm of stroke.) Plug in your tool into an air source, and check the stroke.
- To adjust the stroke positively or negatively, place the spanner wrench on the adjustment groove and turn to your desired stroke.
That’s it. If you remember these 4 easy steps, and take the time to make sure you have the right stroke for the job, your riveting tools will last for years to come.
