I'm starting my own shop with the intention of making furniture. I'm not rich and I want to bend a variety of metals, including flat bar, round stock, pipe, tubes, plate and sheet. How many different tools will I need to buy to accomplish all of this? What would work best (especially since I can't afford the priciest machines), brake presses, hand benders, torch heating with a jig, or forging? Maybe a combinaton of these? I'm not sure what I need.
