Scrollsaw Blade Storage

I need a place to keep my blades handy.
So I ordered some storage tubes, not real happy with them, but they were cheap and not glass.
So I drill some through holes through a 2×4, mounted a strip of wood on either end, and put a dowel though that.
Thus, the tubes sit on the dowel and any sawdust that get in, falls out.
Mounted it to the legs, and put a knob.

It looks nice and professional, Kirk. Self cleaning, too!

Good idea! Frees up a lot of shelf space otherwise taken up by blades.

Very cleaver. Your blade storage set-up is one of the best I’ve seen.

I can’t tell you, I lost the invoice.
But they were only less than $6 a dozen. They are cheap.
I might replacing them if I can find something better.
By the way, I cut the label from the packaging of the blades so that I would know what’s in each tube. That’s a little like work, but makes it easier for me.
