I have the HF 20 ton press that I am adapting to press brake use. It seems to me to be much too low - the die is about 32" from the floor. I'm thinking of adding extensions to the side members to raise it about10". There'd be no hydraulic forces on these extensions, just the weight of the press. The only downside that I can see is that the press will be somewhat less stable (higher center of gravity). If this is a problem, the horizontal "feet" could be lengthened. Anybody else done this, or can anybody think of a why-not?
