paulinkansas Posted April 6, 2010 Share Posted April 6, 2010 Someone (my old dad) borrowed my riding mower and returned it with the blade tips severely bent. Instead of the blades being horizontal, the the tips now curl downwards at a 30~45 degree angle. I have an oxy/acet torch. Can I heat up the tips and straighten out the blade without weakening the tip? I also happen to have a 5 gallon bucket of used oil sitting next to the table vice that I'd use to hold the blade while it's being straightened. Should I quench the hot straight blade in the oil after working on it? Thanks, I know very very little about blacksmithing. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
