That seems to be the general consensus about BendTech. I've been visiting the vendor thread for BT over on Pirate for a few weeks and window shopping. The cost makes you think twice at first, but when you think about it once more, it makes sense that the cost can be QUICKLY recovered by keeping the scrap pile of tube small. I don't plan on doing any production type work - mainly for myself and a buddy or two. I know when word gets out around the firehouse, I'll be getting project requests. Those won't be free and will help bring in some $$$ rather than always sending it out. Money coming in means MORE TOOLS.

It always starts out like this.. If you own a bender and a welder, Jeepers will instinctively migrate to your garage..

Like you mentioned about the initial cost$$ But if you think about it in tube cost= $7 per ft for chromo and $5.50 for DOM and $1.50 to 3.50 for EBW/HREW chromo for example 1 10 ft tube with 1 wrong bend there went $70 bucks!! do that three times and guess what!! you just paid for the PRO version!! and thats just on the first cage you try to build. trust me been there done that. First couple cages were simple and out of EBW/HREW and progressed from there. Like BESRK says when you get a bender get a few new friends.

I can say with confidence that there is likely a lot of TRUTH in each of these statements..... I can imagine this happening. A wheelin' buddy of mine with a "half-tubed" Yota asked me the other night if I had gotten my bender yet. When I told him I had, he immediately asked what die I got. When I told him, his eyes sorta glazed over. He is wanting to finish up an exo with 1 3/4........guess my first die size.
