How To Tri-Fold a Band Saw Blade

Tri-folding (coiling) a band saw blade will reduce its storage size greatly. If you’ve been mystified about how to make this happen, here are the steps:

1) Wear leather gloves and a face shield. Hold the blade like this. Notice my right hand is turned over, palm facing out, and the palm of my left hand is facing in.
2) Hold the blade very tight. Rotate your right hand inward and around until the blade and your hands look like this, both palms facing in.
3) Make one more half rotation of your right hand, then bunch up the three loops so it looks like this. Give it a try. It’s pretty easy to do after you’ve learned the steps.
