Heromount tools make rivets from AWG copper wire. AWG is a standardized wire gauge system used predominantly in the United States and Canada for the diameters of solid electrical wire. This is the size wire you will find in Home Depot or Lowes and other home improvement stores

 

Rivet diameters made from AWG copper wire are as follows:

4 gauge wire is .204" diameter
6 gauge wire is .162″ diameter and is approximately equal to a #9 belt rivet
8 gauge wire is .128″ diameter and is approximately equal to a #12 belt rivet
10 gauge wire is .102″ diameter and is approximately equal to a #14 belt rivet
12 gauge wire is .081″ diameter
14 gauge wire is .064″ diameter
16 gauge wire is .051″ diameter

 

Rivet tools are also available in non-AWG sizes. For example brass or silver rod sizes and metric wire sizes.  Please use the contact form to ask about them.
