      No. Even if the tape breaks, the blade won’t necessarily uncoil. Normally you will have to flex the blade a bit to start it uncoiling.

    Does the tape reside affect the blade when it’s back in operation? Should we use some type cleaner to make sure the masking tape is completely remove?

      Hi, Dennis. If your tape leaves some residue, then you should clean it off. The residue could bind in the work piece or get on your tires.

    I watched several coiling videos on youtube, but I think this is the best way. Unfortunately the video quality is too bad.

    Hello George,
    how about direction of teeth and wear gloves and use 3/4 in. Mini Spring Clamps from box store HD instead of tape?
    Thanks for all ya do.

    You can also do the coiling a second time on longer blades which will give you 5 coils instead of the 3.
