Hi, I inadvertently bent the draw reed plate when I was screwing the harp back together after gapping the reeds, ARRRGGGHHHH! Now air obviously leaks between reeds! What's the best way to flatten the reed plate?

It's not easy to go back to the original state, but try this:

Remove the reedplate, look along to see where the bend is, put that point on a fulcrum of some kind (a raised edge) and GENTLY apply pressure on both sides in the opposite direction. Keep checking to see when it looks straight again.
