Are you looking to increase the bending capabilities of your SWAG finger press brake kit?
The SWAG Gooseneck dies are laser cut at 90° to allow for air bending. These punches are used for forming right angle bends, channels, or other special bends where our straight 90° punch would cause interference and limit your bending options.
If you have used your press brake for any "special" projects you have ran into the limitations of the straight segmented fingers. These limitations become apparent when bending shallow pans or forming complex "U" bends. For this reason, we have laser cut 24 individual pieces of 1/2" plate that can be stacked in line or welded together to suite your particular needs. When fully assembled and stacked in line you will have a 12" long goose neck bending top die.
The SWAG finger brake Gooseneck dies are able to bend up to 1/4" thick material.
If you have the HD finger press brake kit you will be able to bend U shaped pieces that have maximum leg "A" that is 2.0" long and a minimum width "B" of 2.0" wide.
If you have the standard finger press brake kit your "A" measurement will be a maximum of 2.0" long and "B" width of 1.0" wide
Please note that these dies are tabbed together and will need to be cut apart at the end user prior to use, refer to picture #4 above.
NOTE: This listing is just for an accessory die set for your Finger Brake. The Gooseneck Dies cannot be used to bend material without one of our Finger Brakes. They do not function as a standalone product and are not compatible with our Press Brakes.
I figured these would be nice, because my press brake is. Clearly not mild steel. These are smooth and tough. I would suspect some kind of tool steel, but Swag doesn't specify. I don't think they are hardox. I didn't buy them with my break b/c I didn't think I really needed them. Since, then I keep having the need to make double bend brackets. These are just the solution. Very clean laser cut, so not much clean up needed.
These dies bend to 90 degrees, the original bend up to 60 degrees, and the hemming dies bend at 30 degrees. Some have commented about the task of separating the dies, as they come tabbed together. I just flexed the parts at the tabs, and they came apart easily. I then used a 12 inch bench sander to smooth out where the tabs were. It took me about 30 minutes for both the gooseneck and hemming die sets. Both sets now work as advertised.
Was able to break these apart by hand. A few seconds on the belt grinder and they were ready to go. Will do the job I need done.
They work better than wooden ones
Simple, affordable, and effective
