40" Finger Press Brake DIY Builder Kit, With Adjustable Back Stop
Press brake kit comes un-assembled, you do the final assembly and welding.
You asked for it ... & here it is.
Constructed out of high strength 3/8" steel with a 1.0" x 4.0" thick top die and 3.0" wide bottom die. The kit is shipped with fingers in the following sizes, 1", 2", 3", 4", 9.5" & 17" long.
This 40" press brake kit will bend steel up to 37.5" wide and is designed to fit in hydraulic presses that are at least 40" wide between the vertical beams, however it kit can easily be cut down or modified to accommodate smaller presses.
Note: The max bending width and thicknesses are determined upon your hydraulic press and thus actual numbers are dependent upon your press. But with ample tonnage and proper support, this brake will bend up to 1/4" of A-36 steel full width. We recommend 40 tons; (2) 20 ton jacks spaced evenly works great.
Tools required for assembly: Welder, grinder, level, small square.
If you are looking for a press that is compatible with our 40" press brakes consider the following two options: Harbor Freight 50 Ton Press and the Grizzly 50 Ton Press. They are an easy out of the box solution. The frames of these two units are not wide enough to utilize the full capacities of the 40" brakes, however the vertical beams of the brakes are open, this allows the 40" brake to stick through both sides of the frame. The maximum usable width between the frame rails is 32.25" wide for both the Harbor Freight and the Grizzly H frame presses.
Note: Some minor modifications may be necessary or items may need to be relocated, such as the manual pump or the hand crank winch if using the 40" wide brake on these H frame presses.
If you are looking to make your own dedicated frame for the SWAG 40" brakes check out the link below for a fully detailed list of materials needed to create your own I beam press brake stand, which is less work than you may think and is fairly inexpensive, considering what it allows you to create.
