  • Distortion!

    I made the mistake of welding a 2' bead on one side of a 5' square tubing. As you can guess it got distorted. What is the best process to straighten?

    Should I heat it up with a torch?
    Should I weld some beads on the opposite side to see if will bend towards the new weld?
    If anyone could help, I would greatly appreciate it!
    Plez walk me thru step by step.
