Bucking bars made of tungsten alloy with high density are ideal for
Bucking bar is a work tool received behind work surfaces to provide
a backing member in applying impact fasteners and including
intermitted tool head and handle parts with a low-recoil
impact-absorbing spacer provided there between to take shock loads
in compression and shear.
Bucking bars are used on the backside of a metal rivet to counter
the force of the hammering on the other side. They also can be used
to absorb the force of rivet guns, reducing the vibration of
Bucking bars used to form buck tails on rivets. And come in many
different shapes and sizes. They are normally made from an alloy
steel similar to tool steel. The particular shape to be used
depends upon the location and accessibility of the rivet to be
The size and weight of the bar depend on the size and alloy of the
rivet to be driven. Under certain circumstances, and for specific
rivet installations, specially designed bucking bars are
Tungsten heavy alloy bucking bars are resulting in a bucking bar of
the same weight but half the size. Bucking bars are used in rivet
setting to upset the shank of the rivet. Tungsten heavy alloy
bucking bars reduce the recoil when reflecting the impact back to
the rivet shaft.
Higher density reduces vibration and kick back while bucking. Take
a cue from the pros and use what they use. We carry a full line of
standard bars and can custom build bars to your specifications. All
bars have smooth faces and rounded edges and corners for ease and
safety in handling.

bars! Any orders or inquires will be greatly welcomed!
According to the investigation for different bucking bars of the
same shape but different materials and mass characteristics, use of
heavier but same sized tungsten bucking bars can reduce vibration
transmission to the hand.
In a word, tungsten bucking bars are very useful for bucking rivets
and will make your life much easier in the build process.
