Other than throwing away worn out bandsaw blades, do you have a clever use for them?

If you set your goals ridiculously high and it's a failure, you will fail above everyone else's success.

I made a couple of Didgeridoos several years back out of Yucca stalks using a 4-5" piece of 3 tpi blade bent into a U shape screwed to a piece of Saguaro rib as a tool handle. It was then used to scrape out the split Yucca to create the hollow necessary to create the sounds Didgi's help produce. ............ Jerry (in Tucson)

Rip a strip of 2 x 4 just wide enough to set the blade in.
Paint it black, or dark gray, or camo.
Put it on the ground outside your windows, and anyone trying to break in will step on them, & puncture their feet....bad.
Or, put them in your driveway for anti-tire spikes.
It will discourage people from using your driveway as a turn around.
Or, ...wrap them around a baseball bat, set them in epoxy, and use it as a defensive weapon.
It really makes a mess of whatever you hit, or if they try to grab it away from you, they will soon let go.
Believe me.
Just kidding folks. Relax.

I bet if you weave them into baskets, they would be sharp looking. Thought Herb was on a roll, until he said kidding.

I don't think I have ever thrown one away. Being metal, we recycle, but I'm sure some people do trash them.
