I looked at those. But don't have personal experience? Are you bending acrylic now? I do a lot of acrylic bending and use a home made unit.

I've bent up to 60" 1/4" acyrlic with my home made unit.

You can build your own bender for about $40, and they are very reliable.

I meant it should be a good machine , on its specifications I see

I do a lot of bending and use a wire bender for thinner stuff (which I made myself) and a double sided element bender for thick stuff (where you got to heat both sides of the acrylic to get a good bend - 5mm and above) which I bought from england (it was pricey)

What sort of price are G Weike asking for these?
