As you may know I just got a new scroll saw recently. I had this fear that I would loose the blades for the machine. After doing some research on blades themselves. I found out there is more then 2 sizes. I really had no idea there was that many sizes and types. Being fairly new at this hobby. I purchased a intro blade kit from Flying Dutchman. The kit came with 12 blades of 7 different sizes. At this point I needed a way to store the blade keep them sorted and easily reachable. The best solution for shop projects is scrap or pallet wood. I used a pallet I found at work. Come to find out under all the dirt and grime it was hickory.

Great storage idea, I have a similar thing in my shop but I cut out the labels from the actual blade packages and put them inside the test tubes, yours is neater.

Good idea.

I have been wanting to make something similar for a while. I have started buying blades in a gross (144 blades). How many blades would fit into one of the tubes?
