"V" block vises are nice........correct. But the are very limited.

Here are some pictures of what we can do with the TN-250 radial vise. I think the pictures speak for themselves.

Dono about notching bent tubing,but I've had good luck notching with a hacksaw,You just have to have good visualization and practice and those 2 straight cuts make the pipe curve around another pipe.Mabee some day a demo on Yu-Tube.

I notch with a grinder and cutting wheel. I almost bought a notcher for 150 bucks but after making a few notches with my grinder was so glad I didn't waste my money. Same can be done with a chop saw. I like to mark and free hand it.

A few free hand notches
