    Changing A Bandsaw Blade Video

    Here is how I safely change the blade on my 4x6 Horizontal/Vertical Bandsaw. Hint: it is all about the Velcro.

    Great tip Rick

    But I also find that unpacking a new blade can be hazardous. If yours, like mine, come coiled and wire tied uncoiling can be painful, even with gloves. I find that undoing the tie then throwing the coil on the floor works for me. It can twist about well away from me.

    I found a number of YouTube videos showing us how to pack and unpack a bandsaw blade. Tried it and found the technique easy and well controlled. Must wear gloves and at least eye protection.

    Rick, I learned from a mentor in our family timber business in N Calif in the early 70s. We had a small cabinet shop with a Unisaw and a vintage 26" Crescent bandsaw...108" rings a bell...He could fold a blade in 3 by a quick wrist rotation to the middle....and he'd look you in the eye and say, Jimmy, I'm gonna show you this just one more time...thanks again Ralph, and RIP...
