Use a sharp flat file to maintain the angle on each tooth. The circular saw has right and left hand teeth. The most important aspect of sharpening is to get sharp corners or points on the blade. The offset or set as referred to in the lumber industry shuld be about 1/3 of the blade thickness for each side of the blade. An example of the total kerf of the blade would be: plate thickness = 0.150", total kerf = 0.250", or about 0.050" plate clearance on each side of the blade. If the blade is dished or tuned over, the blade can be hammered flat by using a steel anvil and a good straight edge. Check for level on both side of the saw. I grew up in the logging/sawmill industry and spent 30 years in it in the Sierra Nevada mtn. of California. Good luck.

When I was younger we used a cordwood saw. My dad and I used to just use a sharp file and touch up the blade when we used the saw. We also used an adjustable wrench to put a very slight set in the saw teeth. Don't try to put too much of a set in them though, you'll snap the teeth off. Make sure you set left teeth left, and the right teeth right or it won't cut very good.
