Hey hunters!
Hope u all doing fine!
I have a interesting problem.
The resin ear of my kit is quite crooked.
I tried heating it in warm water, but it don't work.
Maybe heat it in the oven is better. On a plane surface so it finds its level on it self?

Any help would be awesome!

Hot box it, put it in a cardboard box with hole in the top (like a lonely island song) and a hair dryer business end in said hole. Turn it on high and leave it for about 10 minutes. Gently trigger clamp it to a flat surface and let it cool over night.

This has got to be one of the best tips I've ever read lolololol

Great tips my friends ! I decided to give the hotbox a try. Took my girlfriends hairdryer and cook the ear for 10 minutes.
First it bends even more. Then I clamped it. The trick is to not crush the edge Detail.
Now waiting till tomorrow to cool down :)
