Put the teeth of the saw inside a piece of paper (check the thickness of the paper so you know how thick it is.) Place the saw teeth with paper on both sides inside a preferably metal vise with two flat pieces of steel on either side of the saw plate/teeth and paper. Tighten the vise as much as possible. Repeat, as necessary, until the entire toothline of the saw has been squeezed. Your saw will have approximately the same amount of set to each side as the thickness of the paper.

This is a method ascribed to Mike Wenzloff currently but one I understand that he picked up from past practice.

It works. I’ve done it.
