This press brake will safely bend 12" of 1/4" steel so 13" of 3/16 is no problem.

I have them in stock ready to ship.

Anyone else looking to bend 3/8" plate?
Troy
Definitely. I've got a ton of brackets to make for my '68 Power Wagon project some of which I plan on using 3/8" x 6" CR flat bar. Welding additional support to the top of my 20 ton press is not a problem. Please post up when these new parts are out and you'll have another order coming your way.

is the milled 60 degree angle then heat treated? If not, any worries of the edge getting worn in the middle from repetitive use?

While this press brake kit is not a production piece of equipment, I have yet to wear the top die.

On a side not if you were able to wear it down or run a piece of slag through the press you could easily resurface the die.

Keep in mind that you are really pushing the design limitations of the HF press on 3/8" plate.

Troy
Are these limits based are your press brake or the press itself. I have a 30 tom press and am wondering if I can do 3/16" the full width with 3/16" if my press will handle it.

I will be releasing a HD press brake kit that is able to bend 6" wide piece of 1/2" plate. It will be out in a two weeks.

To answer your question. The HF press starts to self destruct. I have not tested the press brake kit to the point of self destruction as I don't have a press strong enough to do so.

Sneak peek at the DIY 20 Ton Press Brake HD

It is capable of bending.
15" in 1/4"
13" in 5/16"
11" in 3/8"
6" in 1/2"
3" in 5/8"

If you currently have the standard press break kit and wish to bend thicker metal you will would only need to purchase the bottom laser cut and formed bracket, bottom die, and two vertical guild rods, as the HD press brake kit uses the same top die assembly.

Shown in the picture below is 3" of 5/8 steel and 6" of .50" steel.

Very cool! How much for the "upgrade" if one already has the standard, to the HD?

Thanks for making this!

Do you have to reinforce the HF 20 ton press to use your HD kit? Or is it ok as long as I stick to your recommended sizes?

No reinforcements are needed for the HF press to bend the sizes listed above.

The cost for the upgrade kit will run $85. This includes, bottom laser cut formed bracket, two vertical guide rods, New adjustable back stop, and bottom die. I will treat this as a case by case basis as I'm not sure how many out there will need the HD retro fit kit sent me an email or give me a call if you are in the market for a retro fit kit.
