Counterbending fingerboard 

Posted 7/8/2010 6:46:39 PM

Mandolin-banjo perch stick let go, end of fingerboard over head SLIGHTLY bent up. Held it to a flat surface, slid cards in underneath until bend was filled, then turned it over and clamped ot to aluminum level, hoping that being bent exactly the same amount in the other direction, overnight, might cause the bend to average out to flat.

If that don't do the trick try puttin'a li'l heat on it while its a-sittin' there. A lite bub, not a blow torch.
