Metal heh? cast or stamped?

You can't bend a cast piece, and I doubt if it is on Ryobi tools, BUT you can bend a stamped base back into a flat condition by using a vise and gently pushing or pulling on the corner that is off. A circ saw base is not a reference standard for flatness regardless, so close is "close enough" for most carpentry. :yes:

I bought a craftsman circular saw a while back. Actually, I bought three of them.

I wanted to make sure that the shoe was square and true to the base. I had to buy and return two of them before I got one that was true and that the blade would STAY square once adjusted.

Kind of a pain but I only live 20 minutes away from my local Sears so it was worth it.
