If your auto-mode detection is set up correctly and if you don't have
important buffer-local variables other than those in the “Local
Variables” section, you can just do M-x normal-mode RET.

I mention these two “ifs” above, because as far as buffer variables
are concerned this has basically the same effect as killing the buffer
and re-visiting it.

Btw, you probably know this, but if ‘#’ is the comment character of
your language, you can just write:

# Local Variables:
# mode: tcl
# project: SUMCHK
# End:
