    Most of my use for wood has been to straighten lead screws at work. It really doens't take a lot of force and the wood prevents damage. It is real easy to over do it in a mechanical or hydraulic press.

    The biggest problem with a crank is figuring out where the distortion is coming from. Once that is determined then you need to find a way to get a purchase on the parts to adjust them.

    Thank you Wizard
    You are completely right main problem is - as you said - figuring out where the distortion is coming from.
    Maybe building a crankshaft fixture with gauges to find the points of distortion would help.
