Bent edges on rear hub-cassete connection

Hello,

Doing bearing change i managed to bend the rear hub edges where the cassette connects. I don't know how/if this will affect anything moving on.

Connecting the cassete works fine, and it moves perfectly. I think if anything, the dents and scratches may affect the dust seal there...?
Can anyone advise? Btw, this is a DT Swiss H1900 wheel with 370 hub and Shimano HG cassette.
Unfortunately i cannot attach pictures or urls.. ☹️

Well not sure but either when kicking the opposite bearing out.... or when I improvised a press to get this side out.The "press" had a round edge pressing here which i did not realize.

After it was bent, i un-bent it as you can see in the picture, with a small wrench..

Yeah, I know ... not smart.

Soooo ... is it dead? 😟

Nah, it doesn't look like you killed it and it sounds like it works so keeping running it.

Might touch it up with a little emery cloth to knock the burrs down

Yep did a bit of very soft sandpaper work. Hopefully will be good.

Sometimes you get lucky and a socket fits just right. Tap it in, tap the high spots towards the socket.
