    Anyone ever try to straighten slightly bent blades? I have 2 atomic blades for my 52" deck and they are bent up about 1/4" at the ends. If its not safe, I won't do it.

    its not safe. your going to stress the metal. Not safe to be spinning something stressed at that high of a rate of speed. You can get new blades for 10-12 bucks.

    I agree. At the risk of possible creating a fracture in the metal and then having it seperate during operation, 10-12 bucks seems like the only solution.
