Machined Arbor Press Plates (Pair)

Cut out of high strength grade 50-A572 steel plate. These arbor press plates are sold as a pair and are designed to replace the junk cast arbor plates that are prone to shattering under heavy load. Every SWAG arbor press plate is machined on both sides to remove mill scale and sharp edges.

We currently offer 4 different sizes of arbor plates

7.00" X 7.00" X 1.0" Ideal size for factory replacement of the 12 ton Harbor Freight cast arbor plates

8.50'' X 10.00'' X 1.50'' Ideal size for factory replacement of the 20 ton Harbor Freight cast arbor plates

9.75" X 9.75" X 1.50"

12.00" X 12.00" X 1.50"

The low cost cast arbor plates that are typical provided with hydraulic presses, often fail under shock loading.

Learn from others and look at the 3rd picture above provided by Mud Slayer 2.0 on Pirate4x4.com who was generous enough to provide the story below.

"I was pressing on a bushing using a Harbor Freight 20 ton press with the provided cast arbor plates. I felt the bushing starting to get stiff. about 1/4" left to go I gave one good pull and I heard POW! I felt like I had been punched in the face by a gorilla as the cast arbor plate had just exploded.

One of the guys in the shop came over to check on me and said "Dude you're face is bleeding" I had a gash right next to my left eye. I was driven to the Dr. office where I got 8 stitches. I was told I was very lucky I didn’t lose my eye.

When I returned to the shop I was looking at the press and noticed the porous nature of the arbor plates. This was the day I learned about the material properties of Cast Iron."

Far exceeded my expectations!
These plates are incredible! I'm almost embarrassed to have arbor plates of this quality on a HF press! The plates are probably 40% of the weight of the rest of the press. If you are even thinking about new plates or reading this you need to just get them. You won't be disappointed. I've bought several things from Troy and have been impressed every time. Thanks for making these available.

Seriously beefy
After reading horror stories and watching a few scary videos of Harbor Freight press plates exploding, I knew I needed something that was NOT cast. These plates are extremely beefy and precision cut so you can easily use the cutouts to position things for pressing in bearings, gears, etc. These are a must-have for anyone using Harbor Freight's presses.

Very good stuff
The plates are very good, seem high quality, exact fit to 20 ton Ironton press, which comes without such plates, strongly recommend

Another great product
Great quality, just as described. They make the plates I originally received with my press look like sheets of cardboard. Should have ordered these sooner.

Extremely stout plates....got them for sub plates for the 20 ton finger brake... can't see being able to harm these in this capacity.

Well made!
I was looking for another tool when I came across these. Light years better than the arbor plates that came with my 20 ton HF press. Looking forward to trying them out.
