While at Mom’s the other day I salvaged an empty pill bottle (fish oil, it’s BIG) thinking “This might be big enough to put scroll saw blades in.” Brought it home and today, while waiting for finish to dry… I tried it out and with some scrap 1/8th inch plywood made the holder.
Nothing fancy. I didn’t even sand it.
I made a ‘collar’ that will keep the blade ends in the center of the bottle so as to not interfere with the lid and labled it with the blade tpi in each given section.
I thought about putting a rotating top on it so I could dump out one size blade at a time but decided it wasn’t necessary and probably wouldn’t fit.
I have a drawer/bin on the scroll saw for blade storage but it is really hard to open. I can keep the new storage bottle right by the saw and not have to go to ‘the tool room’ for a new blade! Maybe, down the road, I’ll make a more elegant holder like others on here have posted. For now, free stuff rules!
Thanks for looking. Comments are welcome.
