I intend to contact AZ.
I was wondering about the resale value, Tvad.
I have given some thought to straightening them but am wondering how to flare the middle out. I suppose Icould try to delicately bend it out with a very pointed object. It is that fat part in the middle that gives it a tight fit.
Eldartford, to your point. Don't ends have to fit tightly? They actually fit tighter if bent more. If bent ones get the same contact then what is all the hullabaloo about cleaning contacts and tightening down spades and such. They certainly seem to sound ok bent.
