Lightbulb Warped Pan Solutions?

I did read in the damages section of the site that warping is irreversible. But Iím stubborn and I was wondering if anyone had any luck reversing warping. I saw a guy on YouTube grinding it flat... I think I threw up in my mouth a little bit. I feel like heating it up and hitting it with a mallet and a block of wood sounds logical in theory... but may end up cracking it.

This is what can happen when a cast iron pan, warped or not, receives a sharp blow.

Like a piece of glass... shattered. I figured because it was able to warp, maybe it was malleable enough to be bent back.

Saw a pic someone posted of a spatula they cut out of a cracked pan that was awesome enough to have me on the lookout for a cheap cracked cast iron pan. (Lots of examples on Etsy).

I have one thats just a little warped that I use to cook over open fires.
