    Default WTB: Finger brake

    Hey guys,
    I'm looking for a small finger brake that's 24" or less for home use. I'd prefer something with some fingers that 1/4". I'd be willing to travel to come pick it up if it's somewhere in central Texas but otherwise, I'd probably need freight shipping.

    Take a look at these offerings: Welcome to SWAG Off Road -
    They can also customize them for you.

    That company did catch my eye over the weekend! I wasn't sure if they only did kits for presses though. I'll shoot them an e-mail on whether or not they could do a manual one, thanks for the suggestion!

    I forgot to mention that I'm specifically looking for a manual lever one. Sorry about that, guys.

    You will probably pay twice the price of a four foot brake for the smaller ones?
    Two foot brakes start around $750 and go up from there!

    Ah, yeah, I would really like something larger because that'd be a lot more versatile but I just don't have the space for something larger.

    You may also find a "bar folder" will suit your needs.

    There is a 24" Diacro finger brake in Geneseo, IL. It belongs to Bo Rengerg at Med Tech Sweden. 309-944-5390. The brake is in excellent shape. I made a new hinge for one side of the brake. I believe all the fingers are there. The back gauge is missing.
    Bo knows Diacro's price on a new brake so it would take a sharp negotiator.

    Where are you located in Texas? I have one 24" Di-Acro finger brake without any fingers or back gauge that needs TLC that I would sell for $150.00 if you are interested - in San Antonio.

    If he doesn't bite, how do you feel about shipping it up to Washington State?

    Zip is 98230

    Guys - Thank you for asking about the bending brake - I did not receive either of your PM's, but the brake was spoken for.
