Default tubing notcher

I am looking into getting a tubing notcher for use at my garage at home, I am no chassis builder just need something for mild use. I think I have it narrowed down to ol joint jigger or the jd2. Just looking for some opinions on these from those who have used them.

One main feature to consider is bearings vs bushings. I've a Speedway notcher with brass bushings that are getting a tad sloppy after 20 years of use. I keep the oil on 'em while in use. Bearings will last longer if they are a sealed type.
