When I was at the fab shop we built a custom size I-Beam for a steel mill crane run. The top and bottom flanges were bowed and had to be straightened before they could tacked up and welded. Two of the Old Hands worked with one of the big rosebuds with the head the size of a popcan and a stringline brought them into spec. It was pretty cool to watch.
