This is what we're going for: a neat, tidily folded, easy to store bandsaw blade.
Begin by holding the blade with your wrists down and away from your body.
Put one toe on the blade to hold it in place while the magic happens.
Get low: make the blade an oval.
Bring your wrists (and the sides of the blade) towards each other: you're folding the oval in half now, like a taco facing away from you.
Cross your hands & the two halves of the blade over each other.
The sides will want to coil up now; all you're doing is helping them along. Stack them on the loop you were holding with your toe!
We have a be nice comment policy. Please be positive and constructive.
