  • 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.

      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.

                          Understandable for your baskets Betty, but in my experience 1/4” solid wood for puzzles tends to not hold up very well. Especially the small locks....

                          Should read planer Died yesterday. But Bruce got out his instruction book and google and got it apart. Needs new belt, plastic cover and pulley gear. Ordered from eBay and should have by Monday. Of course all work on dough boards stopped. $55 is much cheaper than a new planer. Oh well, on to the next...

                          My customers won’t buy anything cut from plywood. I’ve spoiled them. I use poplar for all my kid puzzles. With Bruce volunteering at the County Park antique sawmill, I have an endless supply of poplar. My current batch is green and white striped. I make cases for all my puzzles and back them with...

                          I have enough of that. I bought 3 sheets of 1/8 and 1/4 a few months back. Bruce was at the sawmill yesterday and the superintendent of the Park told them they were getting over 50 oak trees from various county parks. The trees have sort of bug that is killing them . They will be quarantining them in...
