Thanks to all for the responses.

I hadn’t thought about the possibility that the blade might have been dropped sometime between the time it left my hands to the time it came back. I know I packed it well, and it came back packed well. I assumed the sharpening shop would have handled it with care, but who knows.

I’ve decided to retire the blade. Unless I had all the teeth replaced I’d be too nervous using it in the shop. Jittery nerves and sharp spinning things aren’t a good combination.

I’ll also be changing how I remount blades on the saw. No more wood blocks on the back sides of teeth; it’ll be a heavy rag and less force from now on.
