Never tried cutting a tooth so do not know if a hacksaw would cut them or not. Do you have a 4 1/2" angle grinder? if so get the metal cutting blades and use it. Just clamp the tooth in a vice at the spot you want to cut and use the vise as a guide. Then to put a curve in them whever you want clamp the tooth in that vise and use a hammer to bend the tooth. or possibly depending on how you need to put a bend in then instead of the hammer use a piece of 1/2" iron pipe. I have straightened hundreds of bent teeth with the vice or anvil and hammer or pipe. Also when they are bent in the spring part Ican usually get them straightened good enough for work. I just redid one of those Case No. 170 rakes this summer and New Idea teeth from the 4 bar models are perfect on that Case. In the last few years I have rebuilt someware around 3 dozen of those steel wheel rakes with several more setting here wating on me. Most of them are going to a dealer for resale. Some of the rakes I have used almost all straightened teeth on because it is not price feasable to put on new when the old ones can be made to work again. And the Teeth for that rake I can get for $2.25 a tooth. This was last years price but I will have to buy 128 of them for this comming year unless I can find some used ones. 4 rakes taking 64 teeth per rake on the 4 bar New Ideas. Some of the rakes I paint and some I leave rusty. Just depends on quality of rake.

Don't remember if the lever from a 160 (3 bar) is the same or not or if I still have it or if I modified it for a different rake.
