Take a mechanical pencil that uses a lead about the same size as the pins,
and carefully slip the metal barrel of the pencil over the pin and
straighten them one at a time. A 33 mhz full 68040 is worth about $25, so
tossing one due to a few bent pins isn't very thrifty. If its totally
mangled, email me, $25 plus $3.55 shipping in the US.
