    Press Brake - Swag offroad style

    I make LOTS of metal shelf brackets out of 3/8"x1" flat similar (like an "L") to what you would find at Home Depot. I got tired of cutting them up and welding them back together, just way too much work so I decided to get the Swag Offroad Heavy duty press brake kit. Man it came fast too.

    So anyway it was very easy to put together. I spent as much time putting the 20 ton HF press together as I did the brake. About an hour or so each. It works great. I highly recommend it.
    Here are some pic of it and the brackets I made on it.

    Looks good, nice job on the Swag piece! HF must have changed their shop press model, no more orange monsters?

    Well actually there are 2 different part numbers for a 20 ton press. One pic shows the gray/silver color I have and the other pic shows the orange.

    They are the same price, tonnage, etc. The only difference I can find is the color. I had a super coupon for the gray one finally and got it cause I don't care for the orange one at all. The gray one is part number 60603. The other one is 32879.

    Ok, Update on that info. I was looking back at their website and now it shows both to be the gray color. The last time I looked at these one was orange and the other was gray. Now each part number uses the exact same pic. I wonder what the difference is... Why have 2 part numbers for the same thing?
    Best regards,

    Justin
