    Gentlemen

    This eagle has been sitting in my "needs doing" box for ages. It is a regular Stanley made plastic eagle except for the fact that it has got all twisted up. Heat?

    Is there a simple way of straightening it out that anyone can suggest or recommend?

    Many thanks

    James

    Pavel, very novel idea. Glad to hear that it worked for you James. Can you post an 'after' picture for us?

    Haha - my thoughts exactly! The results appear nothing short of spectacular, and the risk definitely paid off for you James.
