I'm in Virginia. Just outside of DC if you're anywhere near there.
I'm pretty sure the one I have is made of Nibral (Nickel, Bronze, Aluminum) . It is a defect, it happened once before and was fixed under warranty. I'm having the machinist drill an extra screw in the bottom of the foil which I heard was a good fix. Just wasn't sure about heating that material. I eventually called a prop shop (same material) and they said they can be heated so I'm crossing my fingers and hoping the guy doesn't crack it.
