    I have one with the 1 3/4" die and used it to make my cage last year. It makes quality bents and as long you aren't looking to bend 180* then its great.
    I was bending .120 wall dom. @blazinzuk helped and might have a more experienced opinion.

    looks like it would be painfully slow with the bottle jack....but I bet it's more precise than the JD 3 style of bender...

    Pro Tools 105, is a good one. Depends on how much you want to spend for a recommendation.
