Re: Stainless Fabricator Recommendations for Bent Anchor Roller?
That one should be easy to bend back. I have done several. they do bend easily, 300 series stainless is actually a soft steel, it can not be heat treated, it does work harden when bent and if worked enough it will become brittle and break but you would have to bend it back a forth a hundred times before it would break. I have straightened a couple of these brackets by cutting a two by four down to fit inside the plates, clamp with a big C clamp and twisting them straight on the boat. your looks like a candidate to try this on.
