My neighbors idiot wild mustang bent about ten of my steel tee post. I've pulled them out of the ground. Anybody got any good ideas on how to straighten them easily?
I do have a torch with the rosebud tip but I worried about messing up the temper. I think I may try the pipe thing. It sounds like it would work. Thanks for the advice. I wish I had an arbor press.You could heat them w/ a torch or fire until glowing then bend and cool w/ water.
You could Vice them then slip a pipe over the end down to the bend and straighten it.
Two people w/ two pipes, one over each end down to the bend and straighten accordingly.
Thanks for the tip. I'll wear the safety glasses.Be Careful bending the tee posts. They are pretty hard and can shatter. When they break they send metal flying. Be sure to wear safety glasses if you try to straighten them or better yet use the bent ones for tomato stakes and buy some new posts. They are only a couple dollars a piece.
I needed to move mine to a new location.We had a goat buck bend some of ours , we didn't even take them out of the ground we just bent them back while they were still buried. Ours are about 18 inches in I guess that helped balance out the weight straightning it out. Good luck with whatever you choose.
