Does anyone have any ingenious uses for old band-saw blades? I have accumulated several blunt blades( I chuck nothing) and feel they must have a use.

Mine does too. Only if they are in good nick. Including hardpoint. They don't always cut as straight as new ones but they certainly are very sharp, and it saves a bit of cash.

Somewhere I've seen a suggestion that you cut the blade into about 4" lengths, then clamp all the pieces side by side to make an aggressive sort of rasp. But never tried it.
