I searched about the old school Harbor freight pipe bender. The one that uses the bottle jack and quickly discovered they are crap. I did see this other one here and found out they were on sale for 50% off. So is this one a piece of shit as well? I am looking at bending a bumper and some sliders. The cage I am purchasing. I read the description again and it is a little confusing.

If that is for bar and flat stock then what the hell does this mean:

Die range: 1'', 1-1/4'', 1-1/2'', 1-3/4'', 2'', 2-1/2'', and 3'' round dies; and a right angle die

And fwiw, if you're just doing bumpers and sliders...the bow type hf bender will work fine. Read the threads again and use all of the tricks that everyone else has in the past and it should work OK.
