    Do you guys know how to get a bend out of the bottom of a pan? I have a pan that i assume someone put cold water in while it was hot. The pan is usable but it doesn't sit flat. It is an old griswold with a heat ring. I was thinking maybe a rubber mallet or maybe set up some clamps(it would probably take a lot). I got the pan hot and put cold water on the bottom/underside of the pan, it didn't do anything or perhaps the pan wasn't hot enough.

    *NOTE*. Leave it alone!!! I destroyed a Wagner #8 and it's posted on these pages trying to do JUST THAT! It has been over heated and it'll never be right. You could try a "Rosebud" welding Torch and heat it up, place a heavy 1/2 plate on it upside down and hope for the best, let it air cool. "I" would leave it alone!!! Just my opinion here... :whistle:
