Episode 02 Bandsaw Blade Folding

When you purchase a bandsaw blade, it comes in a neat coil which takes up little space, and is easy to store. However, once the blade is used, getting it back to that initial condition can be quite daunting.

Once you have seen it done, you will be surprised just how easy it is. I have seen other techniques, which include pushing the blade into a wall, and so I offer here what I feel is a much easier technique, at least for blades up to 1″ in width.

I don’t go into any five-ring techniques – my blades are not long enough (14″ bandsaw) to either do this easily, or justify it, and for the majority of bandsaw owners (from the smallest up to the 16″ models, the three-ring techniques are perfectly adequate.

The video includes folding up blades from 1/8″ to 3/4″
