Bent Fence Posts
 
I use the T-bar metal fence posts around our place. I have several which are bent; I've tried to straighten them out with hammer and vise, but they're made of a springy steel that is holding the bent shape. I was thinking of heating the bent section to kill the temper and then hammer it, but was wondering if anyone had any clever tricks to straighten them out.

* Over-bend them on a press or by other means in the opposite direction
of the unwanted bend . Hammerin' on them is just a waste of energy .
