"How to straighten your fish tape:"

From: A. Thompson

Take a piece of 1/2" EMT about 3' long. Bend several 45 degree bends. You'll
want to turn the conduit 180 degrees after every bend, giving you a snake shape.
Completely pull out fish tape and have someone hold each end of the tape,
keeping the fish tape straight and tight. Now feed the tape into the emt and run
from one end to the other, while holding onto the EMT. Do this a couple of times
and your fish tape will be good as new. EMT may get hot so be careful
