    there is considerable amount of play in those sockets. Mock it up to see if it will work without bending. If you really need to bend the sockets, then you want to cut out the bridge, lots of people do this

    Long thick walled tubes of stay diameters 9or bars of same) make good bending levers. Then hammering the gaps down with a drift punch (brass if possible to limit pock marks) to work the sockets back into shape. And get rid of that webbing/bridge. This is why many fillet their stuff. Andy

    A chain stay bridge can be made to fit, its useful to secure the lower end of Mudguards..

    Kick stand plates serve as the chainstay bridge functionally..

    & Formed Sheet BB shells are more bendable than Cast ones..

    there are those that have no holes for the chain stay then the miter and the Fillet braze do the job.
