I just picked one up from Isham which seems to work fine for the relatively low cost of $30. http://planetools.com/products/close...places-prp-26a

Default Close Quarters Pop

I use this one a lot. Great for tight spaces. It's expensive but worth it IMHO.

I ended up cutting the end off a piece of 1/2"aluminum rod at about a 10 degree angle. On the shallow side it's maybe 3/16" thick. Then I drilled a 1/8" hole, centered on and perpendicular to the angled face so it comes out near the edge of the non-angled face.

I pre-bent the mandrel of the rivet, slid the tool over the mandrel, and insert the business end into the hope. That have me plenty of clearance.

Thanks for the help, boys.
