Default Hand Tool to Form Component Leads ?

I'm looking for a hand tool to form 20 gauge bus wire with bends like the ones shown on the capacitor below. (Pliers would work, if I wasn't planning to do several.) Interested in forming uniform "jogs" in solid wire.

Thank you for any information.

Those Excelta tools look great...until you look at the prices. Wow! They're expensive.

Why do you want to do this? The bends are to assist accurate placement by PCB stuffing machines. If I buy components with bends like these I straighten them out before using them!

I'm using a tool made by an Italian manufacturer.
I bend the legs to keep the componente high on the PCB, not flush.
The manufacturer's site is in Flash, and it is really complicated for me to download any tool's image, so I'll post the link: :: PIERGIACOMI HOME PAGE ::
Skip the intro, click PRODUCTS - TOOLS - SPECIAL TOOLS, then search PNR5000, or PTR30C or PNR30 or PNG5000.
The price is very small, about 10 to 15 euros.
