I had the same problem for a long time. How I fixed it was by making a jig that holds the iron in place while I flatten/polish the back. All I did was take a piece of mdf about 3” x 5” and inserted 4 1/2” rare earth magnets into it with epoxy. Cost me about .40 and it works great. In fact, it works so great that I’ve made several and I give them out to people that take my sharpening class at the local woodworking club. If I can remember, I’ll post a pic tomorrow. Another great thing about this is that its much more comfortable :)
