    anyone see the tube bender in the new 4wheel mag. from m-tech, looks similar to the jd squared model 3 bender which I was planning on buying next week. the one in the mag. is about $100 more, dies are about the same, has anyone had experience with either of the two?, or does anyone know of another bender comparable? just curious before I purchase one /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    They're all about the same. I found the jd2 bought from vansant to be cheaper right now. Free shipping over $600.

    I have a pro-tools one shot hydraulic and love it. They even sent me the new updated ram for no extra charge /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I haven't seen the mag but, I have the mtech "private line" bender. Looks like the JD2 but a little heavier with a bearing sleeve so it does not fall apart when you change dies. I got mine when it was a bit cheaper than the JD2 (no shipping due to local) and it's a great bender. Built my whole buggy with it...
