In conclusion. I wouldn’t say Beaspire “2 in 1” rivet nut tool kit is a bad choice, though the critics are true yet some of them could be tagged as the user’s fault. The mandrel breakages or damages happen in terms of too much pressure applied on the handles. The smaller rivnut requires just a minimum pressure to set.
If that can be handled, the user shouldn’t have a problem with the rivnut tool.
