PRESS BRAKE ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS

Very nice product!
I purchased the kit version of this to help build some suspension brackets and skid plates for my '65 Mustang project. I'm just a home garage hack but having nice quality HD tools is a godsend when trying to do fabrication. The kit was very easy to assemble and I actually quite enjoyed the process. The instructions were thorough and the entire process went very smoothly. I used my TIG to make sure that the welds were nice and tight and stayed clear of the ares they weren't supposed to be. Overall effectiveness as a tool is great and it bends the 1/8" steel (4" x 4") that I'm working right now like butter. Very pleased with my purchase. I also picked up the recommended arbor plates which are also very nice.

Mr.
Nice kit with precision components. Works well with nice bends. Care is required to properly align components during welding. An additional hole in the HF press frame would be helpful. During my TIG welding, the bottom angle iron warped 1/8" up at each end, but I was able to press it straight with no problem. More time between stich welds for heat to dissipate would likely prevent warping. I found that the springs can be over-compressed when operating with no metal being bent. I suppose I could cut the springs or the tubes, but I decided not to do that. Note the need to fully support the bottom angle during use. I purchased the 8.5"x10" arbor plates to provide this support. They are great - 1.5" thick with milled top and bottom.

legend in my own mind, LoL
So pulled the trigger on the swag finger break kit, was a delight to weld up used the TIG torch on it for extra enjoyment, everything appears to be laser cut or machined so I didn't need to touch anything with a grinder, not bad for 250 bux and seems like it might be $100 to put the kit together so its not all profit and would be hard to build without a milling machine to face the edges and tapers , lady at the post office complained about the excellent use of a flat rate box as she delivered a dolly to me !! bends just over 90 degrees basically does what they say it does, good for any one doing custom work......

Great purchase. I don't write reviews, and I don't participate in surveys. I will review the SWAG 20 Ton finger Brake kit. Easy to assemble, you don't even have to be a great welder. I'm an old pro, boilermaker to be exact, but anyone that can get the bright, hot end of the weld-thingy to go can do this. Bought the knobs for the jack and the angle-finder also. Perfect. switched the press over to Pneumatic-over ( H-F) and the overall result is excellent. Grandson and I test-flew the rig putting new sheet metal on his off-road Kart. He's smiling.
