Default cage building Info

Im planing on making a cage for the jeep this summer and i was wondering who has built a cage using one of those harbor freight benders?

I dont have the $ to buy a nice bender and i dont know anyone that will let me barrow one.

I will be making my cage out of 1.75 - 0.12 wall DOM tube. the most degree of bend i will probably go is 90 deg. how well would that bender work for want i am about to do how far can one of these benders bend Jesus said in another post that he got these benders to go up to 70 degrees with out kinking. does anyone have any other ways to make these benders work better on tubing. like maybe an insert to adjust for the size diffrence?

Also if anyone has any pictures of some bends or even cages and bumpers built with this bender i would like to see some pics. i have seen some for Jesus but i was wondering if there was any other pics out there
