    Mine came in a wooden box, with circles of closed cell foam between the blades. (Avenger blades... inexpensive but they've worked fine for me.) Have you thought of making a box for yours? It could be something pretty simple, with a 5/8" dowel in the center as a post. then you could cut some foam "donuts" to go between the blades.

    How bout this one?

    If you need spacers, sounds like a good job for those coasters your CD/DVD burner/recorder makes.

    No, not all of SoCal is Los Angeles!
    Tis one was planned to hold 2 blades and a dado set. It ended up full of blades as my dado came with a box but the design is simple enough. The pegs at the bottom were originally to hold shims.

    Sorry, Lary I don't have any sugestions, my Delta set came in a handy case.

    Don, I like your design!

    The style that Glenn posted is a very popular design.

    I keep forgetting to add... That isn't my design.

    I can't take credit but that's what I would do if I needed one. Mine came in the neat plastic case too.

    Heres mine. This was part of the overall design thinking when I built my TS base. I designed two bottom drawers to hold TS blades.

    Here is a shot so you can see the relationship of the drawer to the TS. This is really easy to get the blades out when I need to setup the Dado.

    So you can see the whole thing. Here is the web album for the Table Saw base.

    Hope this helps.

    I'm real fancy. Laying in a drawer, hanging on a nail on wall or on a hook on pegboard.
