I'm interested to know what processes people have used to straighten risers on steel stands. I've been working out of a truck that seems every stand has at least one bad section making it difficult push up.

Happy to hear your thoughts.

Find which way their bent and jump on them to bend them close to right??? Dodgy, yes, but with a little time it sometimes works.

If you are lucky and can find an engineering workshop with a pipe roller, they might be able to straighten it out.

New risers are relatively cheap. Granted here in LA you can just go over to American and pick up some new risers. There may be a parts supplier somewhere in your neighborhood.
