SWAG 40" Finger Brake With Custom I Beam Stand

We have been selling our 40" finger brake for a few years and we frequently get asked, what hydraulic press do you use with the 40" press brakes?

Materials list:
*15 feet of 4"x6"x.25" I beam = $110 delivered
*(2) Harbor Freight Air/Hydo 20 ton rams = $40.00 ea for manual or $100 ea for air/hydro with coupon.
*SWAG 40" brake = $299.95 for standard brake or $599.95 for finger brake.
*1 day to cut/weld and create a few gussets.

You will need to cut the I beam down to the following sizes (2) @ 52.5" and (2) @ 22" long. Then cut the excess in half to form the bottom feet which end up being ~16" long.

At the end of the day you have the ability to bend 30" long piece of .25" thick steel all day long or a full width piece which is 37" long of 3/16" steel.

The total investment in the kit $110 + $300 + $480 + your time = :smokin:

Once I hook up the air hoses together I will then mount the feet on some wheel so I can roll this around the shop as needed. The total weight of this assembly is 366 lbs. Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Thanks Troy
