    280C0A7C-C48C-4A96-A529-FB9C9758C338.jpeg have any of you ever un-brazed a fork leg and Replaced it with a straight one? Is it even possible , I thought they were made that way but may not be? Any tips or tricks would be welcomed. The type I’m asking about is pictured. Or I need a couple of these forks if available.Gary.

    A picture of what you are trying to fix would be a help in answering the question.
