Fabricating tools!!

K guys well im trying to start building my fabricating tools so that i can start my build on my CJ7 sometime this summer. i was watching the trucks this weekend and saw a budget tube bender. has any of you ever used one of these?
JD Squared

also saw the Torch mate. im considering buying one of these since they are not terribly expensive and can only imagine all the cool crap i can make with it
Torchmate CNC plasma cutter, CNC cutting table. Uses your PC and plasma cutter to produce complex shapes.

im still on a look out for a good used quality welder.

anything else you guys can think of that i will need?

-Raul

The model 3 is what they use. Seems like a great deal.

And I've already started pricing a cnc plasma table for the garage.

nope been looking around craiglist for a good chop saw and band saw. saw a decent band saw for 75 bucks... i think it was a 12"

chop saw's are pretty cheap so thats not a big deal

send me some info on your tube bender
