a similar vertical bender would have been around $900+shipping + $73 hf long ram.
a jd2 model 3 (horizontal bender) with similar die would have been $660 + shipping. It would be a manual operating unit until you get a swag kit $110 and $73 hf long ram. Also need a stand or post to mount it.
It gets pricey! If I would have had to buy all the steel for mine I probably would have bought a jd2 or protools bender instead of building.
