Newbie error here,
I was attempting to re-sac a vintage Platinum cellulose pen when I over heated the barrel with my hair dryer, now there is a slight bend in the barrel. Good thing the cap still threads on with no problem. The problem is really aesthetics. I tried one time to warm up the barrel with the hair dryer to bend the barrel straight but it did not work. I thought I would stop there and ask the forum for advise.
So what is the best way to straighten the barrel with out distorting any of the threading or making things worse.
