Press Brake kit comes un-assembled, you do the final assembly and welding. Designed to fit the Harbor Freight 20 ton hydraulic press Item # 32879 & 60603. Press brake kit includes an adjustable back stop for accurate and repeatable bends.
The top clamping bar is machined out of 4140 material and includes 5 segmented removable sections. 1", 2", 3", 4" and 9.5" long pieces. These segmented blocks can be removed and rearranged to allow bending of restricted areas on a piece of sheet metal or on an already partially formed pieces.
The heavy duty press brake kit has the same quality construction and number of components as the standard press brake kit, however the differences are as follows. The bottom formed channel on the HD press brake kit is cut out of high strength 3/8" thick steel and the bottom "V" die of has a total size of 3.75" wide x 1/4" thick to allow for easier bending of thicker material.
- Max Bending Radius (deg.) 110
- Max Bending Capacity 5/8" plate
- Max Bending Width 19.25"
- Total width of the brake is 22.125" wide
Tools required for assembly, welder, grinder, level, small square.
It Is capable of bending mild steel in the following length and thickness.
- 19" = Full bending width of the bottom die on anything 3/16" or thinner.
- 15" in 1/4"
- 13" in 5/16"
- 11" in 3/8"
- 6" in 1/2"

The HD DIY 20 ton press makes a great addition to the arbor press plates we sell HERE.
Cool product, works well . Arrived quick and packaged good !
I ordered the DIY kit and it was easy to put together and had solid instruction with pictures. There are also a handful of videos online that are useful in the assembly process. Ive already used it to make some bench legs in my shop. I bent some 3/8 x 3 flat bar at 42 with ease. Im looking forward to using this more in the future.
The shipment arrived promptly, and packaged well. Assembled easily enough. For the few projects I needed this Finger Brake for so far, it has performed great. A fantastic addition for my DIY projects.
The workmanship is great, parts fit (but then it's made in America). I would recommend this kit to anyone who has some welding experience. The only thing I would do to make it better is to machine an angle in the end of the piece where the slide tubes go. this would save oops when trying to get the tubes lined up for tacking.
Welded it up the day I got it. Quality was great. Started bending right away, fabricating an engine test stand. A couple days later I was working on something else and found myself needing to bend some more metal. I wish I would have gotten this sooner.
