    quoting a job to attach a sign or banner to a steel storage container. it's stationary and won't be moving.
    figured i could just rivet aluminum panels or rivet a banner to the side. any recommendations on a heavy duty riveter? don't want to spend money on something that going to break after a half hour of use.

    or if anyone has a better idea on mounting i am open to suggestions

    Harbor freight has a good pneumatic 1/4" rivet gun. We have 3 of them including the original that we bought 10 years ago. Jaycee sales (rivetsonline.com) has a good selection of rivets. My preference is for Bulb-tite 1/4 when the material were going into is thin because they have a large backside profile and monobolts which they call Interlock, each 1/4" steel. We use these for repairing wrecked box trucks when you cant get a bucking bar on the backside.

    Hope you don't have to stand on your head to do that job as well.
