Are you mounting the altered sawblade to cut right to left, or left to right? (That might depend on whether you were left or right handed?)
I am ambidextrous!!
envisage a long piece of metal facing away from you… Hold your
saw frame at right angles to the metal, and saw a line away from
you. The blade has already been twisted at right angles, so the
teeth are pointing the same way that you are sawing. Hope that
