I’m wondering how you all store your band saw blades. I coil them when not in use and hang them on a hook but I’m looking for alternative methods. Anyone store them differently?

I coil up the big bands for my sawmill and store them in the 10 blade cardboard box they ship in. I hang my bandsaw blades on the wall of my shop uncoiled.

I have big resaw (like sawmill) blades that I keep coiled in the cardboard boxes they come in. The blades for my 9” saw are also coiled and held by a rubber band from which they are also hung on the wall next to where the saw is usually used.

I made something like this to store sandpaper. May build one like this for my bandsaw blades.

Coil them up, put back in original box (if there is one).
Usually coat with WD40 or something to ward off rust.

The one or two I frequently change to I just hang on a nail.
