    I guess it depends on how accurate you want to get and how repeatable you want your bends to be. If your gona bend 3,4 or more of the same peice I'd say its a must. If you are going to do all "one offs" I'm sure you could fab up some kind of pointer and magnetic base to let you know where to stop.
