Default moving circular saw blades safely--for the blades-- not me

Looking for suggestions for moving my 10 in. circular saw blades, about 18, to a new house.

My current thought is to use a sheet rock joint compound bucket.
Stacking them with cardboard spaces. Put the lid back on and go.

Open for any suggestions.

Thanks in advance

I think that method would be fine.

No doubt, that will work...depending on how many you have you could also stack them flat in any square box or container that might be a better fit.

You should make sure they are secured so that the teeth don't get banged on the sides (from side to side movement or banging into other items during the move)...maybe the bucket won't have room for that...?

...and fill in between the last blade and the lid so they don't bounce around...

You might also put a dowel through all the centers so they don't slide...

Basically, do anything you can to make sure they don't slosh around...

bolt the stack together w/ 5/8'' bolt to the teeth don't rattle together chipping one another...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

I do mine like Stick suggests,w/a piece of all thread and a washer and nut on top and bottom.Also use heavy cardboard box material between the blades. If you can cut a piece of plywood for bottom support.

adding a layer of craft paper between blades or thin cardboard is a plus too....

Those are good for storing and moving the blades in the vertical position. Still a good idea to allow room for some kind of padding between blades to keep the carbides from touching. Those could be made to hold 5-6 blades and if you made 3 or 4 of them they wouldn't be so heavy to manage and you could sort your blades by category too.

The rubbery shelf lining is inexpensive from the Dollar stores. Lots of good methods already mentioned. Bubble wrap might pop if they are bolted together when you tighten down on the nut.
