Tubing bender recomendations????
I'm in the market for a new hydrualic tubing bender, and would like to hear what you guy's are using, and your past and present experiences.
I have a Model 3 bender.....well a broken one anyway, and was looking at the Pro Bender 4 http://www.probender.com/ because I can use my JD2 dies, and save a little cash. Anyone familar with this bender?
I'd love to have the Bailiegh RDB 050, but mobility is a big factor for me, so having a manual bender isnt going to work. Things move around in the shop too much, so I cant have something that is mounted to the floor.
So give me the good, bad, and the ugly on what bender you've wasted your money on, and what bender you couldnt live without.

We had a Pro Tools HD model converted into a hyrdo setup. I broke or bent the arms three times doing stupid things or forgetting to pull the pins. It did us well until we needed something faster and accurate repeatability became necessary.
We now have the Baileigh RDB-250 and I really like it. Their stuff is expensive, but the quality and engineering is defiantly worth it. I haven't seen their manual stuff in person, but I assume it's the same.
