I have a bunch of RNC that was stored improperly and it developed a mean lean. (bent up badly)

Is there any easy trick to get it straight?

That warm Florida sun may do the trick.

I would think leaving it outside with the 'bend' up in the sun would get is sorta back.

Or, you may have to 'sleeve' it in some metalic pipe.

The warm Florida sun had no problem bending it. I was just wondering if anyone else had a plan.
I am thinking a few bungie cords and a 2x4. It is only about $20-30 worth of pipe so I am not really that worried about it.

Bungie cords and a straight plank should work.

Yep, all you need is a flat board, a few rigid straps and warm weather sunshine.

If it is going to be used underground, who cares? Aboveground, buy material that was stored properly. laugh

Even underground, you still might bump up against that total bends thing if it is too wavy. wink

I may end up chucking it

I don't know what kind of supernatural law it is but I can have something sit in my shop for years and within a month after tossing it I find a need for it. Ever notice that?

I suppose you could make use of it if you ever need to run an underground line and have to curve your way around some big object like a large tree and its roots... I don't know how often that comes up. smile
