There may be some who will say…”Not until you post-up pictures of your shop.”

My method is rather crude. Peg on a peg board. You really want pics of that?

Pizza boxes on a shelf with a bag of desiccant in each box to retard moisture … 2 blades to a box, separated by a piece of cardboard (the one they put the pizza on). Don’t use a used box … a friend of mine delivers for Dominos and will get me all of the new (read: clean) boxes I want.

I keep mine in their original packaging. Some are in plastic “clam shell” things and others have a cardboard “folder” type thing. I keep them in a drawer dedicated to just them. The dado set is in it’s own case too.
The wax that covers the teeth when they come back from the sharpening service helps to protect them too. I leave it on until they are needed.

I agree with Longhair above that’s how I store mine.

Yeah, peg on a pegboard. I guess having a fancy drawer or dividers looks better and provides better protection, but I figure I have a thousand other things to build first. :)

There’s a pic below of a rack that looks very much like my two racks.

Blade storage is somewhat analogous to blade cleaning….there are many appropriate ways to accomplish the task…neglecting to accomplishing the task is what causes the problems! Not cleaning and not storing your blades where they don’t get banged up, severely reduces their performance and expected service life, which is really pretty wasteful when you think about the cost of a good saw and a good blade.

Knotscott, that looks great, but I couldn’t do it unless all of the teeth faced the same direction…..slight OCD kicking in there. LOL

That’s Funny LH….you’re either faced with the teeth going in different directions or the names facing or not facing….darned if you do, darned if you don’t! Mine has the teeth facing the same way….at least that way I know which direction to sneak up from. ;)
