This thread started a year ago and just now I am getting around to
calling the places suggested. But now there is bad news: NW Saw and
Tool's phone number is no longer in service. That's what I get for
being so slow. :(

And I called Carbide Saw and was told they charge according to how many
teeth the blade has. My blades are all at least 40 teeth, and many
twice that number. They said $15 for a 40-tooth blade. I can buy new
for about the same price. The old ones won't be really wasted, as they
will go to the recycler and end up reappearing as Toyota fenders.

Someone needs to make a home blade sharpening device. They exist for
drill bits and chain saws, but I've never heard of one for circular saw
blades.
