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 the 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.
