About this mod

Straighten out Bent Tin Cans on any workbench, then turn them into Bobby Pins! Requires CRAFT

Permissions and credits
This mod lets you use workbenches to straighten out Bent Tin Cans into normal Tin Cans. Because it's such a simple modification you don't even need a schematic. Just click on CRAFT then Straighten Bent Tin Cans and they'll all be straightened out before you know it.

Also, in this version, I've added the ability to craft Bobby Pins from Tin Cans. The "schematic" can be found in the Gents loo (bathroom, if you're American) in the Anacostia Crossing metro station, near Rivet City. You get between 5 and 15 Bobby Pins per Tin Can, dependant on your Repair level.

I wanted to try out GECK scripting and a CRAFT mod seemed like a good place to start. I decided to focus on making little things to make the game better rather than yet another type of weapon or armour. If you think of anything useful that could be added, don't hesitate to comment. I don't do much with Fallout 3 any more, but if it is sufficiently necessary/interesting I may give it a look.
