Hey, folks. Just another quick question about storage. Is it better to store your table saw blades horizontally or vertically? I've recently built the modular stroage bins from The Complete Small Workshop and I was wondering if I should dedicate one of the shelves to blade storage, not only for the few regular 10" blades but also for the dado set. Anybody have any ideas?
As always, I thank you all for your advice and experience.

Cheers and God Bless,
Kristoffer H.

best i know ,
is 1/2 " dowels and 1/8 " or 1/4 " donuts between them ,
so the tips don't touch .

so vertical would be my choice .

I don't think it makes any difference as long as you don't let the blade tips touch, as the previous poster said.

It doesn't matter in my shop as long as the teeth don't touch.

If they are laying down, I suppose that nothing heavy should lay on them. But as typically stored I doubt that anything too heavy would end up laying on them.

Not relying on experience for this reply, but whichever way you choose, I would suggest you make a series of thin ply dividers between them. That way you can either color code the different types or label them so they are easy to identify when you pull them out. Vertical would probably be the best as David said.

My blades are 16" in Dia so i lay them on top of the drawers under my work bench. But they weight about 50 lbs all together so are quite a job to get to the ones on the bottom. All of the tips have the protectant on them. When i use a blade i usually use it until it's dull and then take it for sharpening.

Thanks for the tips, guys. As always, you've come through again. As soon as I get a chance, I'll post all of the new shop storage. Not that too many of you are going to be seeing anything new, but I'd like to show you all that your advice and tips haven't been going to waste.
