    $\begingroup$ Did you try using ALT+S -> X to scale along the face normals? Edit - Hmm. I should have tested this first. I'm sure it used to be useful :/ $\endgroup$

Try scaling around individual origins and hit SHIFTZ to exclude the Z axis while you're at it.

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you. I had the origins set correctly, but I was trying to scale on the x or y. Shift+Z worked. Thank you. $\endgroup$
