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.

Okay let me first say the customer service was top notch I called to ask about the max capability’s and the gentleman I spoke with dropped what he was doing went out to the shop and attempted the bends I needed to do, I was going to reach the max limits of the current finger so after speaking with him I knew exactly what needed to be done. I made the mods needed and finished my 200 piece order. Which that being said for my situation the mods I would further make are : a longer finger 7 inch : the guid rods could be another 9 inches to a foot longer this would give you all the clearance I was nearly running out of. Besides those two things it’s a great what to get some very repeatable bends for not a lot of money, if your a good welding it should last for ever!
