Storing extra blades

(1/1)

dgdrls:
What are members with swing mills doing to store their extra blades?

Thanks

Savannahdan:
At this time mine are still in the cardboard shipping boxes from the saw doctor.  I've thought about making a couple out of canvas stitched to aluminum rails lined with hardboard on the bottom and sides.  I'd either have a v-flap or zipper closure for access to the carrier.  If I'm not mistaken the ones they sell run around $70 for my 10" sawblade.

Dakota:
Cardboard shipping boxes for me too. I just keep them in the shed, up off the ground.

Magicman:
Just a question from me.  Given our humidity, wouldn't the cardboard gradually attract/absorb moisture which would ultimately cause the blade to rust? 

I know that I had an unopened "flat pack" of bandmill blades that did rust some.

dgdrls:
Yes Magic,  when I purchased my mill the extra blades were in cardboard,
and they did surface rust.  I built a simple wood "caddy" and have the extra's
stored up-right with light machine oil on them.  was wondering if I should store
them in a different fashion? 

flat packed,  vertical, suspended by the eye on a steel or wood dowel?
