Rivet bucker

This tool is used in making phase boxes. Its function is to "buck" the two halves of phase box rivets together, thus securing the nylon washers and providing the box-strings with a post to wind around. It is sometimes referred to here in our lab as the "bottle capper", for its resemblance to that tool.
