Considering many homebuilts such as Sonexes utilize primarily blind rivets I think one could really benefit from auto rivet guns.
Does anybody own one of these dream tools?

The cost would have to be pretty low to make it worthwhile. The one or two seconds it takes to put a rivet in a $30 HF riveter isn't that big a deal. (it might add an hour to a 3 or 4 year build;)

You seem to be missing a point that, for the Avdel anyway, the value is in a new stronger, lighter riveting system.

Very nice, but no for aircraft construction, except open surfaces, to long, hard to get it in confided space.
