Re: Bent Stanchions- repair or replace?
Is it the base or the stanchion itself that is bent? Stamped stainless bases bend pretty easily, and while they can be bent back, it won't be long before you are right back where you started. Cast bases are much stronger, as long as they are not cracked you can straighten them and they should be ok. Bent tubing is more difficult to fix without a tube bender, putting it in a vise will deform it.
