- What hammer for..
car keys. We’ve moved into a new flat. The GF managed to shut the car key in the fire door and bent it. Thinking of smacking it with a hammer to straighten it, but don’t want to fatigue the metal and end up snapping it in the barrel. Looks like it may bent slightly horizontally too?

I’d suggest a vice AND a pair of liners for the vice – A couple of bit of angle-iron or similar. You only want to bend it BACK, not beyond – the more it bends the more it will fatigue, so try to get it right first time.
Regardless, brass is not know for fatigue resistance, I think it’s used in keys because it it “self lubricating”. Get a new one!Posted 4 years ago
