I recently bought some new bandsaw blades for one of my bandsaws and the company that supplied them went to great trouble to help buyers by giving instructions on how to fold a bandsaw blade. At first glance I thought that’s going to be helpful for new users to learn how to fold a bandsaw blade. Inside the package was a nicely photographed step-by-step guide to recoiling or refolding a bandsaw blade. I learned to do this 50 years ago and have done it throughout my working life, and so I looked at the instructions. I tried to make sense of what I saw and read and tried it by following and doing but I realised these instructions didn’t really work. I asked John to try to follow the instructions and he couldn’t make it work and so too Phil who couldn’t make it work either. So here is a method that works easily and gets the snake back into the bag without biting back.
