Back saw repair

I picked this saw up on and there was a slight wave to the blade. Matt Cianci diagnosed from a photo that the saw back merely needed removal and reinstallation. There is an excellent video from Logan Cabinet Shoppe on the process of removing and reinstalling a saw back.

Reinstallation is funny. After reinstalling the blade in the back and seeing it straight, it warped terribly (albeit temporarily) from the saw nuts going in under tension. It's a finicky process, but one getting down, if only for the treasure trove of used saws it makes accessible to you and few others.
