Tube Bandit DRO

Can anyone tell me where I can find, or if anyone has one for sale, a Tube Bandit DRO for a JD2 Model 3 Bender. We have gotten so spoiled using our Baileigh RDB-250 that it drives me nuts when I have to use my JD2 bender (too many dies to replace with the Baileigh) with the little bent wire indicator....lol.

Let me know please.

If you can't find a tube bandit, SWAG has something they have put together;

Sorry Tim, we no longer make Tube Bandit. The Swag unit is probably your best option.

Does this work when bending horizontal? If so, how? I understand if bending vertical.

It should work on any plane, unlike a digital level that works off of gravity and telling whether or not you are level to the ground, (which would only be effective on a vertical bender) this uses an angle finder; from harbor freight. It has a piece inside that turns and measures how far it turns and displays the rotational readout as degrees turned.

Thanks, I didn't see where it was taken apart and reconfigured, just saw the display.
