  Re-sharpening the teeth  

If your saw hasn’t been specially hardened, you can usually resharpen and reset the teeth, and usually remove any bends in the blade.

 
         
  Depending on the condition of the blade, there are a number of ways in which you can give your saw a second chance at life
