I don’t like to lay saw blades on the saw table when I’m swapping them out. I’m afraid the teeth will get damaged. So changing a saw blade had turned into a juggling act until I came up with this handy blade caddy. It provides a place to hang the blades so they they don’t get damaged during the setup process. To use the saw blade caddy, place the new blade on one side of the stand while removing the old blade from the saw. The old blade goes on the empty side of the stand while installing the new blade. If I’m only going to make a couple cuts, I just set the stand aside while I make the cuts and then reverse the whole process.
The saw blade caddy consists of four parts joined together with angled butt joints and screws. The center handle connects the uprights and makes the caddy easy to transport around the shop. A short dowel in the face of each upright provides a way to hang the saw blades.
