I don’t like folding and unfolding blades so I wanted a good way to store them that would protect them as we’ll. I came up with this design. To use it just loosen knob at bottom and raise fitting up. Then just put blade around top pull it around bottom then push the bottom section down to put some tension on blade and tighten in place. These are made to fit right in between two studs in the wall.

Very nice.
I like the idea of it fitting between 2 studs. I can foresee the blade slipping behind the adjustable “half moon” as you try to tighten the tension. You would have to make the box longer but if you added a piece of 1/4” plywood behind the half moon and with a radius of an extra half inch or so, that would form a ledge to keep the blade from sliding behind it.

Not a bad idea. Right now I have 8 of these hanging up for a 14” saw and a 24” saw and so far I have had no issues with the blades slipping.

Nice idea. I dont know HOW many times I’ve scraped my fingers coiling a bandsaw blade. And yes, I’ve watched all the videos on how easy it is, I just keep forgetting when it’s time to actually coil one :-)

Don’t worry I was a butcher for a few years, I Still don’t like uncoiling them…

Coiling them up is no problem..
