PRESS BRAKE ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS

12 Ton Finger Break
The brake kit was well packaged and arrived quickly. I was impressed by the sturdiness of the materials and the quality of the manufacture. The instructions were not overly detailed but were adequate. I'm not a professional welder or fabricator but I didn't have any difficulty with the completion of the brake. The collar on top of the brake for round steel bar/punch that is on my 12 ton H/F press as it has 1/8" clearance on either side of the punch so it can't be locked onto the punch. A shim/spacer, perhaps a short piece of 1 " pipe inside should fill the gap and keep the punch centered. Even without it the brake works well and is likely more capable than the H/F press that it is mounted on. I look forward to using this more and would highly recommend it to anyone in the market for a finger brake of this capacity.

I have to say, this finger press met all my expectations, straight forward assembly installed into my Redline 10 ton press which I have converted to air over hydraulic and preformed great!

Amazing Tool!
As a fabricator with limited shop space I went ahead an purchased the 12TON Finger Brake kit and it is definitely worth it! It was straight forward to assemble and weld together. This brake is strong and bends material with ease. If you are constantly bending material on a bench vise, do yourself a favor and get a SWAG Brake. It is consistent with bending material and leaves a clean bend. Overall, I am happy with the product and do recommend it.

Easy to assemble press
This press brake kit is a great value. Easy to assemble. Works wonderful with the Harbor Freight 12ton press. A great project to teach welding to someone. Everything went together well with no issues.

Great way to bend flat plate with professional results and at a low cost. My press sat in the corner for almost 20 years without being used. Now I use it instead of straining the fingers on my box and pan brake or bending in the vise. I also built a stand to raise the press to height that suits me (I'm 6', 3") and put it on wheels so it's out of the way when not in use.

Excellent Finger Brake
This is an incredible finger brake! I purchased the DIY kit and it was a breeze to assemble. I went from a box of parts to an assembled, working finger brake in about an hour. All the parts fit perfectly and the directions were well written. This brake is easy to use and makes perfect bends.
