    Are you satisfied with it's performance? Is it well built? I am thinking about buying one and need some input.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    I Have the JD2 Model 3 Bender and like it. Its seen a bunch of cages, roof racks, bumpers, sliders... furniture! It's constructed well and rather accurate.

    Its the JD2 Model 3 bender, M-Tech just sells them. I have yet to hear anything bad about these benders. I just ordered one from Mark at M-Tech. Just mention you saw a post on Pirate4x4 refering to his prices and he'll knock off $10 of each item. I ended up saving $30. M-tech is the cheapest I've found and Mark is a real cool guy. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I've got the "non-JD2" clone from M-Tech and I like it allot. No complaints at all here...
