Speedway has a bender for about $500. Works with a hydraulic jack of some sort. I've never used one, but thought it looked worth trying. I think William's Lo-buck tools has something similar

I have one of those "joint jiggers" (holesaw setup) that I really like. The tubing joints always fit perfect with it. Speedway has one of those also.

FWIW anyhow.

I use a bender and notcher from JD Squared out of Florida. I have used them every winter for the last 5 years, and still working good. Reasonably priced when compared to others. I think they have a website.

I was thinking about updating, so may stuff may be available.

Buy a chop saw instead of a tubing notcher, and cut two 40- 45 degree cuts and it will saddle right up (play with a couple of pieces to figure it out) . Then you have a tool that has multiple purposes for the same money. Cut anything you want plus notch tubing. my decisions are based on bang for the buck.
