a bit late, but i generally take the approach with old steel that the less bending the better. In the case of an overset saw I'd joint, sharpen and test. if the overset affected the cut, I'd stone some of it off.

On rip saws, the set is wider than a xcut.

I wouldn't worry about breaking anything I float them, sharpen and test.

If you're convinced they are over set, just reset them.

This is a rip saw so file the teeth straight across.
Everything is a prototype so its a one of a kind.

Now I'm curious about my saw vise.  I have a 12" vise, yet I've seen Paul Sellers use a 30" wooden saw vise.  With the 12" vise I'd have to reposition the saw after a few teeth are sharpened but with Paul's method I could do the entire saw.  What do you guys use?

I bit the bullet and got this, one move for a full size saw, grips well:
