Default Tubing Notchers

I just bought a JD2 Model 3 and now I need a notcher for my cages. The JD2 model is $250, but the one from Woodward is $65. I am failing to see why this one would not do what I need, but I have no expirience with them. Anyone here have suggestions?

Edit: Titles should say tubing notchers........

For $65 I'd give the woodward a chance.

As long as it's not flimsy so the hole saw moves around and it has the precision in the adjustments you're looking for, it should be ok. If you're excessively ----, it may be worth getting a better one. It should work just fine, though.

The fab shop I worked in for a year uses the JD^2. Been in use for over 8 years now... All my friend does is 4x4 rigs/chasis work and cages for cars... Says something for the quality of their products.
