Introduction: How to Fold a Bandsaw Blade


This is what we're going for: a neat, tidily folded, easy to store bandsaw blade.

Step 1: Wrist Position

Begin by holding the blade with your wrists down and away from your body.

Step 2: Toe Position

Put one toe on the blade to hold it in place while the magic happens.

Step 3: Get Low.

Get low: make the blade an oval.

Step 4: Start Folding

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.

Step 5: Cross Those Hands.

Cross your hands & the two halves of the blade over each other.

Step 6: Let the Blade Do the Coiling!

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!
