Wonder if you can use a heat gun to heat it up and make it more plyable(sp) ? Or you might be able to use lighter fluid.

well I have really thought about it... found a OBS I like and want and they want just under $9,000 for it... but if I'm able to start the apprenticeship program soon I will try to save it for a couple of months and try to get me a OBS with my gi bill money but I will have to wait a couple of months to see what goes on with that... that way I don't have to get rid of the SS
