How to manually repair a double frame 1. Note the end of the frame is bent down 2. The outside of the frame is pushed out Im sure someone will comment they could live with this. Fine Ill trade you.
This is supposed to be square You will need big strong C clamps used for metal work.
Options: - A lot of heat. But not on a double frame, and whos going to do it in place? - Tow to a shop $$$ - Build a big bender?
Before this was done (didnt take pictures) I squeezed the upper lip together which raised it somewhat with the frame to the rear. See next slide Yellow arrow Using the steel bar stock as a sandwich.
You have to use some big wrenches to turn the metal bending vises. Raised with bar stock running over the undamaged area of the frame to the rear. Clamp the rear undamaged area first moving your vise out to the bent area
To get the outside bend straight I did this. There was also a little bend in the bottom outside where the lower vise is, you should use the flat stock instead of the point of the vise. This looks straight, but with a level the top still needs to come up 3/16 so the beer can wouldnt fall off frame. So now a big monkey wrench and come-along. This took two hours I expect to take another hour pulling the 3/16 I need for level.
