Plenty of information how to heat shrink a frame back to being straight here in the archives.
too add on the string idea.
I use a string tied to two 1 gallon jugs to do my alignments. its a good way to put a straight line in the air next to something

also when im picking out boards. i look down them the long way it becomes easy to see a wow in there.
