Twist ties. Sorry my brain is not working too well.





Just get the metal wire out.

Using the bread ties would be the most ghetto PC mod i've ever heard of

You can probably bend them back. I don't have much experience of it personally, but i imagine it to be like preforming brain surgery, while blindfolded. and riding a horse. backwards. So be careful.

Find a plastic "gapping" tool, something that is a perfect fit to gap the pins the proper distance from each other. I used a bread/milk tag it was the perfect width to gap my 965 pins after I launched it across my kitchen.

So once you've gotten them less bent with the mechanical pencil use the gapping tool to space them out and line them up.
