    SWAG HD Finger Brake DIY Kit

    I built this SWAG Finger Press awhile ago for bending brackets. I also have one of their Milwaukee band saw stands too. SWAG sells great quality top notch kits. Just make sure If you should build one, you don't weld the bottom V-die/angle iron to the bottom C channel frame, until you have the top finger die bar holder, and it's mounted finger dies sitting exactly in the center of the bottom V-die.


    I ordered two extra springs for another project, the kit only come with two springs.

    Jody Collier at weldingtips and tricks.com has a great video on putting together the standard kit from Swag. Looks like a fun project.

    I didn't know about the kits, so I built my own. I use it every day, and have $10 in it.
