Chicago Dries and Krump Fingers

Post by reidry » Fri Apr 26, 2013 2:45 pm

As an altenative to an import brake I've been hunting a used American made brake. The Chicago D&K are of course very capable machines. Down here in Florida used ones seem to bring almost new prices.

I have a line on a used 48" one, but unfortunately someone has taken all the fingers. Does anyone have one and can send me dimentions for the fingers? Or perhaps someone knows a source where I could buy one or two to use as patterns?

Thanks in advance,

Just make a solid bar, and use it that way. If you can make that, sawing a few sections into fingers can be the answer for you.
