I have a small tenon backsaw and the blade is not straight on it. I first noticed that I was having issues with the saw binding in the cut and when I looked at it I see that it has a twist to it. Before I start man handling it I wanted to ask for some help. I have read a few things around the web but honestly don't understand what they are saying for the most part. Any help?

Provided the blade is not kinked, my understanding on this is that you can re-seat the saw in the back. I have an old Disston dovetail saw that has a slightly wavey blade that I picked up for what I consider to be a good price. Anyway, I haven't done the work to fix it yet, but I seem to recall that the proper way is to clamp the saw in a vice and tap the back with a hammer to more firmly wedge the blade into the back of the saw.
