    If it were me I'd build it myself - I like doing millright work like that.

    I've never heard of that company before but that dont mean nothing.
    You might try doing a google search for some credentials or testominals.

    I don't know about the one you're talking about, I have a Pro Tools, model 105. Very simple to use, and makes nice bends. Check it out.

    www.pro-tools.com

    I wound up with about 800 bucks in mine, if you're planning on bending chrome moly tubing much, I'd get the hydraulics, it's tuff shiite.
    No matter where you go, there you are.
