I once bought an Enco box and pan brake, it had the same problem. I don't know about yours but on mine either the finger dies were made wrong or the basic frame of the machine was made wrong. It didn't matter how close you set the apron to the die fingers, you still got a horrible bend. After a small bit of investigation, I found that the slot the fingers slipped into was way too big, allowing the fingers to raise while bending.

The fix was irritating but simple, make a bunch of shims to tuck under the back of the dies to stop the movement. I could have corrected the problem by either making a new frame or making all new dies,... my answer was to just sell the machine and allow someone else to deal with it.
