    Interesting.....

    I watched the video all the way through. It was surprising it'd only do 3/16" x 1-1/2" with a 90 degree bend (the easy way) while it would edge bend 3/8" x 1" (the hard way).

    His spec page should be upgraded, it's wrong and misleading, he shows the bend radii as "up to", it should be as "small as" since smaller radii are harder than larger.

    He should demo it mounted to a work bench rather than the wiggly mount on a hitch post, I found that distracting.

    It must be expensive, it appears you have to register to get pricing, to me, that's a tip off it's going to expensive.

    Still interesting though.

      I thought he could have mounted it better also.

        Its was designed as a take to the job site tool it can be mounted to a stand or bench. it was for what everybody calls wrought rails and fencing and capraial for the step railing. think its in the neighborhood of 570.00 US.
        under $600.Us. The harbor fright 12 ton pipe bender layed on its side with some homemade rollers will do the same thing. for $49.00 $59.00 on sale
