Metal worker in the area - December 2, 2016, 01:00 PM

Any recommendations for metal worker?

I have an aluminum door threshold adjuster plate and just need it straightened as much as possible.

There is a slight dent from the left of the red line in the following pics.

You could fix it using two blocks of wood and a hammer.

Or replace it using a piece of metal corner guard, a saw and a drill for $15
Like these:
Home Dept Corner Guard
or
Aluminum Sill

There are other options, and with the measurements you'd probably find a direct replacement.

I only say suggest the above options because it'll take more time and cost a lot more money to find a metal worker to fix this dent.

I caused the buldge on the side trying to straighten, so thought I would ask before I destroyed it LOL.

There is a slight dent in the top left of the surface that I was trying to fix.

Thanks for the links, the challenge in finding a replacement is this one is adjustable, so it has screws in the top that you turn to adjust the height to meet the door bottom.

Wish I knew the manufacturer to order a replacement.

Metal is such a funny thing sometimes. You think you're hammering it to straighten something out, and the metal is instead reacting counterintuitively and shrinking, puckering.

I was able to get it done with some heat, pliers, wood block, and hammer!
