Lo Pro Edge - Bent Fine Tuner... Fixable?

I'm on a roll lately...

Just got a Lo Pro Edge off the 'bay for about half price. The thing is dead-mint except for one thing: the low B fine tuner is bent (see pic), and therefore will only go down a couple turns before it freezes:



I'm not sure if this happened in shipping, but I failed to ask the right questions as a buyer, but that's beside the point...

This thing is pristine--I can't find a single other thing wrong with it. It's also flat black, which is exactly the color I wanted. Is there ANY way to salvage/fix this?

If it was my problem, I would probably put the large end into a vice, heat up the screw part with a flame of sorts, and then with pliers bend it back. Or buy a replacement which shouldn't cost much..

Are those fine tuners replaceable? That would be my preference... as I have a couple other Ibby trems lying around that I can use for parts.

How do you get that fine tuner out? I've never tried to remove one, because it seemed impossible.
