My shell is bent, I believe, on my Scotch and Soda. The half .50 and English penny do not fit into the shell well. It clicks and one almost has to force it in. How does one fix this?

Force the insert in, squeeze it in tightly, bang it back out, repeat 20 times or so, it should loosen up.

To really loosen it up to the point of where it may not "lock" over the insert

To loosen the shell, take a silk, fold it in half and place it over the insert and force the shell over the insert. Next pull the silk halves apart thus popping the shell off the insert.

That will really start to loosen it.

If you need to re-tighten it, roll the shell on its edge on a hard surface like tile.

Hi,
I had the same problem with my Scotch and Soda set. I took a very fine nail-file or emery paper (I'm not sure about the right words in English, sorry) and rubbed the coin one time very lightly around with the paper. After this it fits. Hope I could help

I had the same problem, but I took a wooden dowel, tap hammer and a thick piece of
cardboard and "hammered" out the bends using the flat end and the round edge to reshape the edge a bit.

Whenever my S&S shell bends (which they all do in time) I place a dowel in the center shell, and hammer the curvature out of the shell...
