Woodworking Tips: How to Fold a Bandsaw Blade into 3 Rings

Woodworking Tips: How to Fold a Bandsaw Blade into 3 Rings - Airplanes and RocketsSometimes when I change or replace the blade on my bandsaw, I have to re-learn how to fold the blade into that nifty 3-ring configuration it has in the package when new. Even with trying to carefully note how the new blade unfolds, it can still difficult to get the old blade back in its original format. It can be confounding and almost seems impossible to be able to fold the stiff blade into that third loop without bending it. In fact the bandsaw blade folds quite easily when done properly. This time after figuring it out once again, I decided to make a video of the process. There is probably a complicated equation in knot theory which mathematically described the complex curve formed by the folded bandsaw blade.
