If your pan needs a ride to be straightened on a KRW pan jig, Mike will be at the Puyallup swap meet.

Call Mike for details:

Realizing there could be a lot of variables involved, what would a "ball park" guess ($$$) be to have a pan straightened ??? (not including shipping). Also, what would any indicators be that would justify having a pan straightened ??? The pans, other than the hangers, appear to be well made and rigid. So how does a pan get so outta whack ??? Thanks Tom for your valuable time in answering these questions.

$125.00 plus the cost of a snout bushing, which is a few bucks if I recall correctly. Almost all pans are bent in every conceivable way. Snouts bent up down left and right. Radius rod socket bashed in and pulled out and pushed left and right. Rear ball cap socket bowed up or down, left or right. Pan holes misaligned. Entire pan bowed concave or convex. All of the above plus more. I don't know how they get so bent, but I can only recall one that I've ever stuck onto the jig that wasn't bent.

Between a couple friends and me, we're sending 6 or 7 pans, all long noses (1913 & earlier) and one 1909 pan.

The 1909 pan may not fit.

Thank you Tom, I appreciate the response. Seems like maybe some off roading, going through ditches or possibly falling off a jack could cause a bent pan. Either way it would have to take a hell-of-a jar to bend a pan !!! Hey, there 90+ years old, only god knows what they've been through.
