    I found an old weedeater in our garage and it used to not run, but after a little work I got it going again. It is one of the weedeaters that has the bend in the shaft near the head... This might be a dumb question, but is there anyway to get that shaft bent back out straight??? any help please.

    Umm, in a word no a curved shaft is designed to run with a curved shaft. You would need to replace the head with a gearbox to make the head run on an angle with the shaft.
