Don't boil them. a past issue of powder had a good method that CroatianSensation tried and it worked quite well. You heat up the tail with a heat gun, stick them in a vise, bend them, drill holes in a U shape arould the tail, then put rivets in the holes, and epoxy any areas that have exposed core. It works well.
