    Wow my dream! I have the swag finger brake and a tig welder. The plasma table is a dream of mine!

    TWO HYPOTHERMS?!?!?!? What one for freehand and one dedicated to the table?

    What table is it?

    How do you like BendTech Pro? Thinking about buying it this summer.

    Also what bender do you have and how do you like that as well?

    Yes, one for free hand and one designated full time for the big table. I have a smaller Baileigh 2x2 CNC table that I use on occasion with the 2nd Hypertherm. The 4x8 table is an ArcLight Pro 9600.

    I like the BendTech software thus far. Ive had it for about a year now. Its intuitive enough for anyone to get familiar and up to speed rather quickly. I liked the tube notching template features. You can print templates to wrap the tube for perfect notching. Thats great for anyone one - beginner to pro fabricator.

    I have the JMR bender. Picked it up through Trick Tools a while ago. I like it, especially with the air/hydro ram on it. 👍
