Well,had a bit of a result,Monsoon are sending me a Pro-kit for acrylic tube and some more info in what to expect from them
The Pro Benders Kit is really four distinct tool kits all in one big box so that virtually everything a builder needs is included.
There is a special Layout and Planning tool kit that has a very simple to use yet accurate center line plotting and measurement system. The Mandrels themselves also have center line capabilities built in so the layout and planning tools mesh seamlessly with the Mandrels. All hardware and screws are included.
The mandrels are machined from solid aluminum, polished, anodized, and laser etched for maximum durability and surface quality on tube contact surfaces. They feature relevant degrees etched on in 1 degree increments. As previously mentioned they also have center line capabilities built in, and the 45, 90, and 180 all feature extended support legs. This makes sure the tube is not only easily held at the exact angle, but is also held exactly "on plane" with zero deformation or twist etc.. They also feature dual pass through holes for M4 (over sized for fine adjustment) that allow for flat mounting on your bending board. Also included are metal 90 degree clips that allow the mandrels to be mounted upright (perpendicular) to your building board so that builders can easily bend and fixture in two or more directions AND on two or more planes at the same time.
The cutting kit features a miter box (I am including an image below for you--you can post if you like), the saw with extra blades, and a combination inner/outer reamer to clean up the edges after a cut. The miter box is also designed to work within the center line system making locating cuts exactly where you need them very easy.
The heat gun kit includes a dual setting heat gun, diffuser, and cotton gloves for handling hot tube.
All screws, clips, and other hardware are included--all a builder needs to add is a 24" x 24" x 1/2" particle board work surface--typically available at big box home improvement stores for $7 - $10.
There are some very cool things being done behind the scenes as well,which im keen to share but its something for someone else to announce
All i can say is that it is an exciting time for Hardliners soon!
When it arrives,pics will be forthcoming in abundance.
