tjdieselperformance tubing bender?

Anyone used or have any experience with this or this style bender? I know it has limitations, but at $300 with a die, seams like a good deal.

I know someone who just bought one but has not used it yet. He said construction wise it looks good. He bought it to do race car chassis and cage work.. Sorry not alot of input

that cast aluminum die scares me... I would get the one that used JD2 or pro tools dies if you are set on a bender like that, really you should just get a pro tools 105 or a JD2 bender and be done with it... at least that way you can get a 180+ degree die and bend shock hoops.

I wouldnt get it just because of the die.
