I'm not sure about straightening it, but I know HL will replace the entire motor for 1/2 price.

Dan,

Call Hobby Lobby, not your local shop. It's always best to deal directly with the distributors on warranty/repair issues.

You could also take the motor apart, take it to a machine shop, and have the shaft straightened.

Larry your friend David at Hobby Lobby said to say HI, They do not replace motors only speed controls. However he did sell me a new one at a much reduced price and I am very happy and pleased with Hobby Lobby they do indeed look after their customers. Thanks again Larry and Matt. Dan
