        I bought a Woodward fab bender simply because I had a discount card that saved me almost$100 from northern tools. The dies are a good price and you can custom order dies pretty inexpensively from Heck Industries, their parent company. Never used another tubing bender before, but the bends seem to come out ok.

            I have a Hossfeld, but it has been collecting dust on a bottom shelf for a couple years now that I got a RogueFab bender. Like the JD, the Hossfeld bends horizontal, so you need a large swing (aka takes up a lot of shop floor space). The Rogue bender bends the pipe vertical, and my shop has high ceilings. Built many roll cages/bars with it, works great.
