Abstract: Machine for attachment of rivets, buttons or the like, particularly to clothing pieces, with an upper tool traveling towards the lower tool, which upper tool sits on a vertically guided upper tool ram. The working stroke of the ram is achieved by means of an inclined surface of a wedge, the latter entering between a roller of the ram and an abutment on the machine side, with the inclined surface of the wedge running on the roller.
