    I dont think that it has been damaged by being bent at some time, but it is not curved , so much as two straight bits joined together.
    Anyone else seen this before?

    Its certainly bent, hereís a pic of mine which I bought off the same guy on flea bay. This one has smaller screw holes so I suspect itís been shortened due to damage. I still love it though 😃

    Well done Warren -Mine really shows no sign of how they bent it but I will put it through the flypress and correct it now that I know it isnt meant to be bent
    Thanks

    I donít suppose it was done while it was fitted otherwise one end would have probably sheared at the fixing hole or at least shown a bit of damage like a slightly elongated hole. Out of curiosity did you measure it to see if the bend was dead in the middle. Youíll curse me next week if another turns up the same shape! And mine turned out to be the one bent out of position 😁
