Handrail Bending - Methods?

Question

What are folks preferred method of bending handrail wire for locos and rolling stock? 

So far I've used a small needle nose pliers which can be a bit fiddly but has worked.  Have folk used better options such as jigs like the one below?

I've got one of these, Noel and find that, with a bit of practice, it works well. Won't produce those handrails that wrap around a locomotive smokebox though. For me, only trial, error and [a lot of] rude words eventually produces results.
