Default Bump in my base

Okay so I have a bump in my base. I have no clue how it got there and I am wondering if I can fix it.

That's from tinking your edge. The feet of the edge have pushed back into the base. Take a heat gun hit the base for a few seconds till it's warm then slap that fucker with a mallet till it goes down.

A heat gun is just like a hair blow dryer but for industrial use. A iron will burn the base due to contact.

Doubt it will get hot enough. If there's a hockey store around, they will have a heat gun for working on hockey sticks.

You can get a heat gun from home depot. They're used for lifting tiles and lino. They get way hotter than a hair drier.

That little bump isn't gonna affect your riding. But I wouldn't ride it across any metal surfaces like rails.
