I just found a cool site for people that want to fab there own roll bars bumpers etc.

There prices are a little high, but the software for tube bending looks cool, as well a the angle guages. <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

I agree I saw there stuff in the Four Wheeler mag on build your own cage last month. They do have some nice tools. I thought the benders werent too high for what you get.

I dig the software for the bender, it takes all the guess work out of the task. <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

Its funny that Fourwheeler and now you guys feel that the high priced option is aimed at the do it yourselfer. I Don't see why any shadetree mechanic would need something so fancy and expensive. Its nice but not necasary just look at some of the stuff that has been done on this board with much cheaper benders.

I have use the same bender that they used in
4WD & Sport UTE last month, without the digital readout thing. Let me tell what an awesome bender. My friend owns a race car shop and does a lot tubing work(chassis, cages, etc.). I would imagine that it is a costly piece of equipment, but it works flawlessly. The software does take all of the guess work out building cages.

I personally am a Journeyman Electrician and by trade I bend conduit all the time so a bender that is less than $3000.00 dollars is a good deal to me. I am aware of the JD2 and several other brands and the Mittler Bros looks like a nice simple tool. Some shadetree mechanics want to buy the nice easy tool and save time instead of money. So if you have the money (which I dont) then buy the nice one.
