Default Coiling a Band Saw Blade

Alex Snodgrass in his excellent Band Saw Set Up Video shows how to coil the blade but the view is blocked and I couldn't see exaclty how he did it from point A to point B.

Below is a link to a You Tube Video by WoodWorkers Guild of America (In case you couldn't figure it out like me) that will provide the AHA moment.

That was the best demonstration I have ever seen, tomorrow I'll put it to the test. Thanks for posting it.

That is a good demo. Most of them go so fast it is hard to see exactly what they did.

Here is another good video from several of the editors at Popular Woodworking that shows two methods. I have found the foot method works well for me.

I've read an article about coiling band saw blade. But of course, video rendition is always the best. Thanks for posting.
