How to - Coil Sawmill Bandsaw Blades

Coiling and uncoiling bandsaw blades needs to be done correctly. Here is a quick, step-by-step guide to proper blade folding. ALWAYS REMEMBER to wear gloves and eye protection when handling blades in addition to keeping others at a safe distance when coiling or moving blades.

Coiling the blade:

  1. Raise the blade with teeth pointed toward you. Slightly squeeze the blade inward.
  2. Keep your arms locked, swinging the top of the blade down so it bends under.
  3. On the downward bend, bring your hands together crossing over each other.
  4. The blade will form three loops. Lift the bottom blade upward with your left hand to catch all three loops in one coil.
  5. Your blade is successfully coiled. Remember to secure the coiled blade with a wire tie to ensure it won’t uncoil.
