Hello overbored. I'm thinking of straightening the dent. I'm not sure I understood your method. What is the purpose of the mandrel? Is it just to support the mast wall while tapping directly above it? Or should it be a tight fit inside the mast, and pushing it under the dent would push the dent upwards?
