I have had good luck fixing customers flanges by clamping them to the welding table and heating them up then letting them cool while still clamped. If they are still warped I mig them pretty hot so the weld lays down fast and then grind them flat. I have tried cutting them on the Bridgeport but they are hard to clamp to the mill so they would be safe to cut. I hate throwing parts out of the mill or lathe they usualy hit something painted and not the wall.
