Hi guys, I just picked up a vintage tenon saw from a yard sale. I then restored and tested it. The saw curve seems to be off to the left side in its free run ( free run: only push with slightest force). I tried to troubleshoot this problem and found out the saw plate is warped to the right side in its lower part. Clamping the saw plate and bend it to the opposite direction is tried and not working. Any suggestion on such problem? Thanks
I had a go at straightening the blade on my dad’s tenon saw, using the methods Paul showed here. I did get the blade to move and change, but my experience with banging the back of the saw on the bench was that it is quite difficult to get the impact right. You need to hit it as straight and flat as possible. I had a lot more success with the method shown in this video.
