No copper or plastic tubes, just a piece of scrap wood with holes for the common blades I use.

WayneMahler I store mine in mini tubes that I picked up at a craft store. Originally they had bubbles solution n the for weddings. Got like 24 or 36 tubes for about $8. They are large enough to hold several dozen blades, easy to mark the sizes on them. Plus the grand kids had a ball blowing bubbles all over the place.

Mike Mini's tubes are also the perfect storage container for quarters. This will help people who play darts, pool, arcade games or use laundramats.

This question has probably been answered multiple times; however, Steve Good showed a very simple and inexpensive way to store blades. You know the tiny M&M's that come in the tube with a flip top. After emptying these, I places his blades in them. I saved one for that purpose as well.

wsmith0896 I use the mini M&M candy tubes. You can find them almost anywhere, they are brightly colored, made of plastic, inexpensive, and you can have fun eating the candies before you place your blades inside the tube.

Vector01 Great idea...I used 1/2" pvc and spring clamps to mount my most used blades to the saw.

Knothead47 Wood magazine had a tip in their 101 Ideas book for storing scroll saw blades in PVC pipe and making a rack to store them upright.

jw2170 Hi Eric,

from the sub-forum and the thread title, I think the OP was talking about storing scroll saw blades not router bits.

Although you post gave me some ideas.
