Arbor Press Plates (Pair)

Cut out of high strength grade 50-A572 steel plate. These arbor press plates are to replace the junk cast arbor plates that  are prone to shattering under heavy load. 

We currently offer 4 different sizes of arbor plates

7.00" X 7.00" X 1.0" Ideal size for factory replacement of the 12 ton Harbor Freight cast arbor plates

8.50" X 10.00" X 1.50" Ideal size for factory replacement of the 20 ton Harbor Freight cast arbor plates

9.75" X 9.75" X 1.50"

12.00" X 12.00" X 1.50"

The low cost cast arbor plates that are typical provided with hydraulic presses, often fail under shock loading. 

Learn from others and look at the 3rd picture above provided by Mud Slayer 2.0 on Pirate4x4.com who was generous enough to provide the story below.

"I was pressing on a bushing using a Harbor Freight 20 ton press with the provided cast arbor plates. I felt the bushing starting to get stiff. about 1/4" left to go I gave one good pull and I heard POW! I felt like I had been punched in the face by a gorilla as the cast arbor plate had just exploded.

One of the guys in the shop came over to check on me and said "Dude you're face is bleeding" I had a gash right next to my left eye. I was driven to the Dr. office where I got 8 stitches. I was told I was very lucky I didnít lose my eye.

When I returned to the shop I was looking at the press and noticed the porous nature of the arbor plates. This was the day I learned about the material properties of Cast Iron."

Rating Very nice plates!
 
I received these plates and have been very impressed with their quality and the flexibility since they have the various size cut-outs to handle just about any pressing job. I keep kicking myself why I hadn't ordered these sooner!!! I love buying U.S. quality! Thanks SWAG folks for providing these!

These are a great addition to the finger brake press and flat top die. They're quality at a fraction of the price of comparable arbor plates. I use them quite a bit as an anvil as well. Great job, Swag. Keep up the good work.

Everything they said they were and more. Definitely stout and now worries getting after items on the press anymore!

Rating Good plates, very pleased with quality,
 
Bought these plates after the Harbor Freight plates snapped. Fit great on the 20 ton press and I'm not scared these are going to give out. Much safer than the originals.

Having had an encounter with a cheap Chinese chisel and shop hammer that resulted in an afternoon in the urgent care center to have a piece of steel from the hammer cut out of my leg, these just seemed to make a lot sense. Loosing an eye or some other permanent injury of some sort is "life changing". This was a hell of a lot better purchase than the $900 I'm spending each month on Obama Care (that asshole).
