I am looking to get a tube bender for various projects... Does anyone have any suggestions as to which one to get?

The one thing I prefer to stay away from is manually bending anything...

I bought a JD Squared manual bender 11 years ago, and it is the best thing I have bought. I would put is up against a Hossfeld any day.I do race car fabrication work and build roll cages for a living, so I use it every day, and the manual bending is not a problem, even on chrome moly. The benders are pretty cheap,about $400.00., but the dies will cost you anywhere from $100.00- $300.00. I have 10 different die sets going from 3/4" up to 2"
