Machined Arbor Press Plates (Pair)

Cut out of high strength grade 50-A572 steel plate. These arbor press plates are sold as a pair and are designed to replace the junk cast arbor plates that are prone to shattering under heavy load. Every SWAG arbor press plate is machined on both sides to remove mill scale and sharp edges.

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 didn’t 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."

Far exceeded my expectations!
These plates are incredible! I'm almost embarrassed to have arbor plates of this quality on a HF press! The plates are probably 40% of the weight of the rest of the press. If you are even thinking about new plates or reading this you need to just get them. You won't be disappointed. I've bought several things from Troy and have been impressed every time. Thanks for making these available.

Seriously beefy
After reading horror stories and watching a few scary videos of Harbor Freight press plates exploding, I knew I needed something that was NOT cast. These plates are extremely beefy and precision cut so you can easily use the cutouts to position things for pressing in bearings, gears, etc. These are a must-have for anyone using Harbor Freight's presses.

Super Press Plates
After struggling for years with the chinese cast iron plates that came with my 20 to harbor freight press I found myself needing a flat surface to support a part so I ordered these 8x10 Swag plates. These plates are machined flat, heavy weight plates with no paint or corrosion and worked great with my 20 to press. I recommend them. I was lucky to be able to replace my cheap chinese plates before they broke and caused an injury.

Press plates are very nice and thick. Excellent quality and finish. Should outlast the 50 ton press's.

Arbor plates
Bought the Swag 10×7.5 arbor plates for my 20ton HF press to replace my stock ones. There is no comparison between the 2. The Swag plates are pretty massive and quite heavy. Your mail person will definitely resent you for awhile when they come in. The extra size and the flat machined surface of the Swag plates make using the press manageable when I have my finger break installed.
