Andy’s series has tons of good stuff on making the saws look better, but I didn’t see much detail on how to clean the saw plates to save the etch.
I may have missed it,

Here’s a few methods to clean the plate. Not sure if any of these go into redoing the etch, but most of them describe using a sanding block and going easy over the etch to not lighten it too much.

I used the first one because that’s the stuff I had around.
