Default Clarification?

Are you asking about the tool to make the correct dimple for a CS-4 (120 degree countersink) pop rivet, or a dimple tool for an AN rivet (100 degrees) that uses a pop rivet puller to compress the dies? I might've gotten the wrong end of the stick there...
If it's the former, then you'll want one to make the pop rivets lie nice'n flat in both the floor pans and the lower edge of the cabin top where the fiberglass gets pop riveted to the side skin. The plans don't specify any difference in the dimple die required for a CS-4 vs an AN rivet, so there are a lotta bumpy floors out there as a result

Talking about what now is called a close quarter dimple die set that is set using a pop rivet puller.

In the past they were just called pop rivet dimple dies. Before the now common 120deg countersunk rivets.

I can see where the two can get confused.
