    I have a omnigard 18" ruler, I put it in a sewing box and it bent a little in the middle, any suggestions how to straighten it out, or is it for the "useless heap"?
    Thank-you for any help you can give me, it will be greatly appreciated.

    I would set something heavy on it. A big book or a board with some kind of weight set on top.

    Maybe stack some heavy items on it and see if it flattens back out? :D:D:D

    Lay it in the sunshine or warm it up somehow first, then lay something on it and it should straighten out.

    Thank-you for your suggestions, I will try them all, very little warm sun yet, but I will be watching for it also.
    Thanks again, I love the people on this board always there to help.

    Hit it with a hair dryer and then quickly pile on the books. Worked for me.
