depends on the type of blade I suppose, if the teeth are staggered to each side then the the teeth need not hit the wheels, however, if it’s like the majority of bandsaw blades then it’s fine if the teeth roll across the whiles, it won’t hurt them as it’s flat against the wheels. As for old dull blades, they make good card scrapers when cut up, flattened and burnished.
