Riv Nut tool needed, Taunton / Somerset or surrounding area

Does anyone have a rivnut tool as required for fitting of a RAI?

Looked online and they seem to cost a bomb. I only need to crimp 3 nuts.

Same here, just make sure you don't drill the hole bigger than necessary.

The rivet hole sizes need to be very precise for them to work effectively and vary depending on manufacturer http://www.memfast.co.uk/shop/Vprod1.asp?cat=3882001832

The alloy rivnuts are more tolerant of hole size and seem to have a larger head as well, plus of course are easier to crimp.
Always grease the bolt/screws when fitting so it comes undone in the future otherwise you will join the long line of rivnut haters.
 Give them just enough.
