What’s the best way to bend a small piece of steel? I don’t have any fancy tools etc

Fly a plane into it to soften it up. Otherwise find a neighbour with a vice and lump hammer.

Go to the gym and get some muscles you pathetic weakling 

It’s actually my squat rack that’s needing bent. Once that’s done I’ll be over to Hamilton to bend you.

How could a squat rack be a "small piece of steel"? 

It’s a part of it. 

I didn’t rack up a lift earlier in the week and the bar dropped, resulting in a part of the bar that connects the two uprights being bent. 

Ive bought a ball pein hammer to try and batter it into shape but no joy. Tried to just crank it back in with a spanner hit again no joy. Off to YouTube it is.

You want a sturdy metal tube to give some leverage, preferably a few foot long.

Can anyone recommend a company that services house alarms. I’m in East Dunbartonshire.

If you give me your full address, I'll send someone over.

Can't you turn it upside down and drop the bar on it again?

Maybe heat it up a bit first? If you’ve got a gas hob then that’s a bit like a blowtorch.

Has anyone been to either/both the ScotKart places in Clydebank & Cambuslang?

 

Which one is better/recommended?

Been to Cambuslang it was good the boys running it were sound. Going to Clydebank one a week on Thursday so will let you know how I get on unless your planning on going before then?

Would be next month, a quick look online suggests they are similar, but Cambuslang is a bit of a bigger track

Got a letter a few weeks ago (that I forgot about) from the Office for National Statistics about a survey. Got another one today with a name and a phone number on it to phone someone up and carry out whatever study they're doing. Do I have to or can I phone up and tell him to bolt?

It's not the Census so I don't see how they can force you to take part. I would just bin it and not even respond.
