So expect to spend 600bucks out right just to have the bender and one die.
I've been thinking about it long and hard if i should get one. I don't think it would benifit me right now, but eventually I will purchase a JD.
Good luck and keep us posted on what you get.
A friend of mine and owner of 4wdfactory.com (a sponsor of this board), Had a JD and switched to a protools and now carry the protools with pretty decent prices. I have seen both benders and the protools is much beefier, every peice on the thing is alot thicker than on the JD. I don't knowif it would matter but it is something to think about.
