bent stabilizing jack screw

One of my A122S stabilizing jacks has a bent screw. It makes it difficult to hold on to the Black & Decker drill I use for raising and lowing the jack. Doe anyone know of an easy way to straighten the screw? Can anyone recommend a good replacement jack that doesn't require me to drill new holes in the frame? Thanks!

You should be able to drive out the roll pin in the screw and remove it and straighten it on an arbor press or very carefully in a vise if you protect the threads with wood, etc and get a long pc of pipe and carefully bend it back straight. Then just reverse the procedure putting it back together.
