I am not saying the JD2 or Pro Tools benders SHOULD be adapted for Hossfield type duties, just pointing out that if a hobbyist like me has one of those and has a specific project they should open their mind to making tooling for it to do the specific task. JD2, Pro-Tools and the likes have chosen to focus on tube bending which means their marketing and product support is more focused in that area, whereas Hossfield while capable of doing tube bending is probably not going to be as good at responding to tube bending issues, but also has many more capabilities to offer.

I would love to have Hossfield tooling and the knowledge to use it but I feel like they could do much much better at marketing those capabilities, especially in the digital age. I'm not criticizing the capabilities or the merits of buying one over one of the tube bender companies' products.
