Due to your medical issues, you probably should consider the hydraulic. Too, the hydruaulic would provide more portability over the pneumatic.

I did go and the Huck. Gotta say I liked what I saw. Going to try and find one I can try out before buying anything. Just started the hunt. Thanks much.

Give good advice (for the average bear) and then more curves are thrown in.

Just something to think about with your hand issues, the air and hydraulic tools are a lot heavier than the manual tools. As in 3# versus 3/4# or so. I have the manual tool Fort Idaho mentioned and it doesn't take a lot of hand pressure to seat and finish a small pop rivet. Now any bigger and you'll likely have problems. The leverage on that particular one is designed for the larger pop rivets
