Finger Brake w/Gooseneck Dies

As always, Swag delivers! Kit was well packed and easy o assemble with basic welding skills. Slight modifications due to me using a Dake Press, but I knew I would anyway.

This brake has been a great addition to my shop. Paid for itself on the first job. I was skeptical at first, but now I wish I had bought it sooner, it really works great.


Works great! I modded this to work with my enerpac bench top press by cutting a custom 3/4" base for it and cutting off the locating tabs. So far it is working perfect.

12 Ton Finger Brake

Great Product. The kit was complete and excellent quality. I saved money (and had fun) by welding the kit myself. Instructions were well written and easy to understand. Good value and great product. Built it on Friday and made 4 brackets for my HMMWV on Saturday.

12 Ton Finger Break

The brake kit was well packaged and arrived quickly. I was impressed by the sturdiness of the materials and the quality of the manufacture. The instructions were not overly detailed but were adequate. I'm not a professional welder or fabricator but I didn't have any difficulty with the completion of the brake. The collar on top of the brake for round steel bar/punch that is on my 12 ton H/F press as it has 1/8" clearance on either side of the punch so it can't be locked onto the punch. A shim/spacer, perhaps a short piece of 1 " pipe inside should fill the gap and keep the punch centered. Even without it the brake works well and is likely more capable than the H/F press that it is mounted on. I look forward to using this more and would highly recommend it to anyone in the market for a finger brake of this capacity.
