Easier to assemble than it looks
As someone new to welding and fabrication I was a little bit intimidated by these kits... but I knew I'd never learn if I never tried, so I went for it. I'm glad I did. Not only is this thing really well engineered, the assembly instructions are very clear and easy to follow. I had it put together and working great in no time and was scouring my shop for scrap metal to practice bending. I'd highly recommend using a digital angle gauge when you're bending with this. Because the fingers are not 90 degrees on the end (this is a good thing) it is easy, especially with thinner metals, to go past your target.

New capabilities
Like everything at SWAG, this finger brake is extremely heavy duty. You'll never have to worry about the performance of this on a 20 ton press. First thing I bent was a 6" piece of 1/4" plate to 90 degrees. I couldn't believe how easy it bent 1/4" steel. Now I need to upgrade to an air powered 20 ton jack to make this effortless.

SWAG Heavy-Duty Finger Brake Build
No issues with the materials or the build instructions. Too bad the review will no allow links. A nice photo album of the build available on facebook. We're now running with the SWAG arbor plates, the heavy-duty finger brake kit, the add-on bottom die, and the gooseneck finger dies.

20 ton Finger Brake
I bought this prewelded. Very nice quality welds. I tried it out with a piece of 1/4" flat bar, it seemed effortless,very impressive. A very nice USA made addition for my home shop. Customer service was great.

Had to give it 4 stars not 5. Bought the pre welded version and one of the guide bushings was a little off and my bends weren't coming out even. It was an easy fix though and once done it worked amazing. Already made my money back on this.

I bought the heavy duty finger brake kit for the express purpose of misusing it and if for some reason it survived I would benefit from having the finger brake at a later date for a lot less time and money than I would have had into building all the tooling myself. I’m installing an airbag kit on the front of a Kenworth and needed to remove some of the arch from the springs, these springs are 4” wide X 1” thick and the local shop couldn’t bend them cold so I thought I’d give it a try. I made a quick die that has a 1 ½” round bar to push on the spring and used a couple chunks of steel to spread the load on the press bed, I maxed out a 90 ton press with this setup and was able to pull some of the arch of the spring. Good news is the SWAG 20 TON Finger Brake was completely unaffected my intentional mistreatment and will live on as a finger brake. Thanks Swag
