I once had a flat spot on a rim about 10 inches wide and 1 inch deep, it was incredible that the tire stayed on and pressurized. Anyway, I removed 4 or 5 spokes and using a baseball bat (only thing on hand), beat the rim back into shape. Worked real good. Seeing the log technique reminded me of this.
