Bag tags bring bandsaw blade benefits

Tags attached to bandsaw blades.

I use luggage tags with strings to help me organize my bandsaw blades. On each tag I record blade information such as pitch, width, manufacturer or source, and so on.

When installing a blade, I hang the tag on the bandsaw’s upper door handle so I know which blade is on the saw and when it was installed. Plus, the tags work better than tape, which can leave a residue.
