Hey everyone,

Got some bent fins.  Shown dry-fitted.

Attempts to use hot water to fix warpage has either been ineffective or disastrous (not to mention painful) depending on water temperature.  Is there a way?

 

BTW...  this thread topic is in no way, shape, or form related to Heywood Jablowme.

 

Cheers!

This is going to sound crazy, but I am usually using cold bending. Very carefully applied pressure in small steps along the bending point. Don't be scared of the discolouration of the plastic , but there is only s much you can bend, in this case plenty of room .
