I had some time Saturday and I used it to straighten the counter weight rod, declination clamp rod and the declination slow motion rod.
They were all bent bent when I purchased the telescope and they straightened out nicely, sorry no pics.
I also made a repair to the tripod leg tip that had suffered some rust damage.
I had made a small plug from an old 1/4-20 bolt to fill the missing end and give me a nice base to weld on without melting the thin metal the tip is made of.
I think it turned out good, (see before and after pics attached), and should work just fine.
I put together a short video of the repair as well.
That is an ingenious fix!
