How to Coil a Band Saw Blade

 

One of those things that you keep forgetting how to do, because you don't do it that often

 

To coil a band saw blade:

  • Set blade on the floor and step on it (don't grind the blade into the floor which could dull the teeth0.
  • Rotate hand clockwise and grab the top of the blade.
  • Rotate hand counter-clockwise while pushing down on the blade
  • The blade will coil into a manageable—but still somewhat dangerous—coil.
