  • Blade Holder

    I got tired of having my blade tubes rolling around and not being able to grab the one I needed so I built a holder. Plan on screwing it to the side of my Dewalt base.
    Made it out of Poplar and stained it Red Mahogany. I also cut lugs on the front pieces and stuck them through holes cut in the base plate so it should be plenty strong. The tubes came from Woodcraft and are about 7/8" X 6"

    Looks real nice, Okie. I like it. I have a lot move of them, so I had to make mine bigger. I just used pvc pipe & glued them on a tray with handle. Nice Job.
    PERK

      I thought about that but right now I only use 4 different blades and I figure I could always build a bigger one if and when I need it.

            Ok, I give up. What am I going to see after I see GO Advanced...?
            Im waiting for my next shipment of Flying Dutchman blades that I hope get here tomorrow to fill the new tubes.

              Doesn't look pretty, but I bought a clear plastic case meant for storing screws - made sure (measured in the store) that the compartments could be configured to be long enough. Still have the blades (from Mike) sitting in the mailer package though! He has them in labelled bags, so I could store multiple types of blades in the same compartment if needed (I doubt I'll ever get that many types of blades though!).

                Block, I used the little pieces of paper that comes with the flying Dutchman blades, I slip it inside the tube so. Can see which one is inside. I also write on top if the lid.

                      Forgot to post this one.
                      It is for holding the blades for a Hegner saw.

                        I made a blade holder out of small cardboard tubes.The blades I keep there tend to get a little rust on them. I now just lesve the blades in the container that Mike sends them in. No more rust. I also had a gross or more of different blades in that cardboard holder and knocked it on the floor. Have about 150 blades all mixed together. Some of the larger ones I can tell what they are. Most of the smaller blades I just guess what they are.

                          Among other things. I was surprised to see 190 proof. Everclear tops out at 150 proof here in NC, but I have seen it at 190 in Georgia.

                          What was the old college recipe? Equal parts Hawaiian Punch and Everclear? You pour it into Mayo jars, put the lids on and store in the original boxes....

                          I saw a "practice pattern" to learn how to operate my saw. I decided to print out what I thought was a fairly simple pattern that would cover all the cuts and possibly have something at the end. Please tell me that the pattern lines are really just suggestions. Improvisation is acceptable....

                          Those are great! I would be interested in seeing how you box them.

                          BTW, Everclear is banned in some states but still available in others. I also recently saw another brand of 190 proof at the local ABC store here in Gibsonville, NC. (I did a quick Google and found the brand is Diesel)
