Store Blades Near Your Scroll Saw

Posted by The Scroll Saw Lady on 2nd October 2008

I use a strip magnet mounted somewhere on the scroll saw, or stand to hold extra blades, so that they are easily available. Find a convenient location and mount two pieces of strip magnet about 4″ apart to hold the top and bottom area of the blade. I also find it nice to mount the magnets on riser blocks about 1/2″ off the surface, this gives your fingers room to pick up the blades.

Scroll Saw Blade Storage

Posted by The Scroll Saw Lady on 4th September 2008

Blade StorageA must have for any scroll saw shop is storage for your blades.  You can either buy one like the one on the left or make your own.  I have used pvc pipe, cut to about 5 1/2 inches and then just drilled holes in a scrap piece of wood and inserted the pvc pipe into the wood.  Mark each piece of pvc pipe as to what blade size it is holding and viola you have a great storage spot. 

Blades can be very difficult to tell apart and time consuming trying to figure out what blade is what, so, keep them well seperated and labled and you will save yourself a ton of time! 

Happy Scrolling!
