Today's carbide-tipped saw blades are significant investments, so their brittle teeth deserve protection when a blade needs to be stored off of a saw. Woodpeckers® has a new wrap-around option called BladeSaver
that provides both protection and a convenient hanger all in one. Molded from tough ABS plastic, and functioning similar to a bike chain, BladeSaver consists of connected links that wrap around and conform to the blade to protect its rim. A master link opens and closes to capture or release the blade. On top, BladeSaver has a hanger so you can store your blades vertically from a pegboard, inside a cabinet door or on the wall. Woodpeckers offers BladeSaver blade guards for both 10- and 12-in. saw blades. The smaller diameter version (BLADESAV-10) sells for $11.99, and the larger BLADESAV-12 costs $12.99.
