Thanks to all that chimed in on the "coil a band saw blade" thread. I could not find the original. I know Per was one of the trainers.
I have two kinked blades and a bunch of scars from previous attempts:o .
I went down to the shop and coiled up 4 blades with out a mark on me:D .
Thanks again.

I don't bother. Got a peg on the wall near the BS and just hangem..

Hey Tyler,

If you find a way to make a kinked BS Blade work? Holler at me. I have a new BS blade that is kinked pretty good and I'd like to be able to fix it and use it. :rolleyes:

Tyler and Dennis, I used kinked blades on a regular basis, but only for sawing out rough blanks. Two pairs of pliers will bend them back to close to straight. They thump a little, but other than that, I have not had any problems with them. I wouldn't try to resaw veneer though! :eek:

I will say that since I got the MM20, I have not kinked a blade.
