Storage of Saws


Recommended Posts

I'm wondering how other molders store their fine saws. I must had a dozen or more in two different categories. One for regular cuts and the other for metal or harder woods. I want a way to store them so they will be readily available yet not so lose as to damage the blades. There must be a way. I'm sure you have the answer.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I trace out the saw on a piece of 3/4" pine board, and then add 3/4" all around.  Then I glue a 3/4" x 1/4" strip on the tooth-side of the tracing.  Then I drill and embed a couple magnets into the board and stick the saw to the magnets.  The wooden strip on the tooth-side locates the saw on the board and protects the teeth.   Then you can screw the board to the wall, or carry it around as needed.  I also have made a 'holster' for my japanese saws, sort of like a six-gun belt holster.  It works for me.

I made the description, of the idea of a shopbuilt magnetic holder too complex to understand.  It's quite easy to do.

 

Oh, and a light spraying/wipedown of vegetable-based kitchen canola oil (i.e. rapeseed) such as PAM, works well  against rust, and can be washed off easily with soap and water.
