Searches for new physics by experimental collaborations represent a significant investment in time and resources. Often these searches are sensitive to a broader class of models than they were originally designed to test. We aim to extend the impact of existing searches through a technique we call recasting. A framework designed to facilitate the usage of this technique, called RECAST, is presented. We illustrate the issues and subtleties involved through several examples, including new results obtained from the reanalysis of archived LEP data.
