I just happen to have an extra one, no snaps however. I will get the particulars on it in the morning and let you know. I also have several good drills, if you are in need of one.No Chinese junk. No harbor freight junk. Currently looking at the economy ATS rivet guns which are $95 and $138 new and free shipping. Will consider anything below that.
Wonderful, thank you. As to the drills, I honestly don't know; this is my first build(from plans too). I have a decent cordless drill, a large dremel, and a drill press, so I think I will be alright on that front for now.I just happen to have an extra one, no snaps however.

That I agree with 1000%. But those folks in China need jobs too and I'm not in charge of how the government sets up these things.However, I'm at the point where it feels morally wrong to give so much money to China.
I don't mean to get into a whole political discussion in the for sale sectionI'm old enough to remember the same qualms about buying from Japan; you don't hear those complaints much anymore.
It's impossible/impractical sometimes. I buy optics from Japan. Amazing quality stuff, and great people.It sometimes irks me trying to find an item I want/need that is made in USA.
If I were you I would rethink using a cordless drill for building an airplane. Not that it can't be done, but as you will obviously have a compressor for riveting, I think you would find that an air drill will be less cumbersome, easier to handle, and more sensitive that a cordless.
I don't doubt that, but you did mean to share with us *your* political opinion.I don't mean to get into a whole political discussion in the for sale section
Angus gave me a fair price on an old Sioux air drill, so I'll buy his. Though he doesn't know what RPM. I am curious how it performs. Never used air drills before.I encourage everyone building in glass or aluminum, to get a good high speed (3000 RPM) air drill.
Seems costly, but use it a few times and you never will want to use an electric drill again, unless you find a good high speed electric.
It's true. I'm always willing too, but I know forums can get out of hand. And I'm new here so I'll try to not ruffle anyone's feathers yetSad thing is, we can't seem to civilly discuss politics these days. We'd be a lot better off if we could.
Hand riveting seems a bit crazy when you can just buy a used compressor and riveter, then sell when you're done. Saves a whole lot of effort. But I have little experience, so maybe I'm wrong. It does seem like all the tool bundles come with a hand riveter.Man oh man! I'd hate to consider building a Sonex with a hand riveter! "Come on man! Here's the deal!"
