X2 save your money and get a quality bender JMR has a bender for the fabricator on a budget buts the benders are not the expensive thing when it come to tube benders it's the dies. check out the JMR Sportsman bender you can get a bender and one die set for around 500.

Now that's a hell of a deal I might have to jump on some of these. Seeing how I don't need dimple dies all the time 1018 should be just fine.

just what i was thinking (and aparently 5 of my friends).
this moves the shop press up a few notches on the priority list. yall have any likes or dislikes for any of the brands? i'm still debating what ton rating will be best suited for me.

I have the 20 ton Harbor Freight shop press and i love it it's well built for the price. But I've done some upgrades I bought some 1.5" rolled steel arbors to replace the cast widow makers. And I'm going to get the Air/Hydro 20 jack so i don't have to pump it so dam much. Also I picked up THIS to make bends in plate steel and it's well worth the money.
