B****r. I've messed up the teeth on my nearly new tuffsaw blade. or at least I assume that's what's happened as it used to cut dead straight and now wants to do circles.
I was trying to trim a block of wood with what Ithought was glue down one face but seems to have been a fine cement?
Anyway, blade is now behaving like an unruly teenager.
Is it home fixable? How?
I know they're not expensive in the scheme of things, but I hate throwing stuff away.
Thanks for your help

Depends on what material the blade is made from.

If it's hard point (Tips hardened, (show blue colour cast) then your only option is to sharpen the tips and hope it cuts straight.

If it is not hard point hardened you can sharpen the tips and re-set the kerf (tooth set) same as a handsaw.
