I was stuck for one, so nipped up to the local Wilko' and got one for about 6. Four changeable sizes, spanner included and it works a treat. Nice easy onehanded operation too.

Think we've got a Stanley swivel head one which really helps for getting rivets into tight spaces especially after 5he car is all together and you've put more than a few in really awkward places

I got a YATO one off ebay, small size (fits in your hand) 4rivet sizes. I thought being so small compared to some it'd be harder to use when it comes to the pressure needed to break the rivet but it's really easy.
