Fin Straightener

28 Aug

In the course of painting the bathroom, the hot water baseboard heater has to be taken apart and sanded.  That means I had time to clean the fins of the heater.  But how to straighten them?  I had never been able to figure out how to do so before today.  Today I thought of a wooden skewer.  With it I pulled lots of dust out from between the fins, which a vacuum cleaner helped remedy.  And it did a good job straightening the fins and keeping my fingers intact while doing so.  Left to right–from finished to undone area.
