Is there anyone, preferably local, with the skill and tools to make this thing look a little better who can lend a hand?
How do I get started undoing the dents and extremely bent base?
Bummer Ian.... nice machine.
I had posted a while back about how I straightened the chassis of an HP7970E tape drive that was mashed in. It involved some angle iron and long bolts.
A link describing what I did is here:
But I don't think the picture is available any longer.
If the device in question doesn't have vents as mine did to run the bolts through... drilling a hole or two and then patching may be better solution than leaving bent...
