BE SURE TO USE HAND AND EYE PROTECTION AT ALL TIMES! The blades are sharp.
Step 1: Unfolding a Bandsaw Blade
Using the hand you picked the coil out with, reach for the free hanging coil and lift it upward. It will form a triangle.
Release the free hanging coil upward and away from you. This will straighten out the whole blade letting it unfold easily.
Step 2: Folding a Bandsaw Blade
Grab the blade holding it out in front of you, you want to grab it so that your hands will be able to rotate inward.
Twist the blade. This will cause the blade to want to bend in half, make sure it it bending in half away from you.
Loop the top section of the blade under the bottom lead slightly to the side so that in one hand two coil will be forming and in the other only one coil will be forming. The top will loop up underneath to form a coil.
Once the coils are formed simply join them together and store it away.
The following step will show another series of photos of the same folding technique.
