How do you "Fold' bandsaw blade?

Unfolding a blade is difficult to describe in words, since 'things' happen kinda fast, but the trick is to find the blade's 'weak' spot by separating the coils slightly. Separate any two of the coils a few inches, and if you found the right combination, the remaining coil will be separated from the other two slightly. If the remaining coil stays imbedded in one of the others that you're holding, that's not the right pair. Choose another coil and try again. When you find the coil that stands off from the other two, untwist the pair. I should mention that you should be wearing gloves and a long-sleeve shirt. The blade will spring apart pretty quickly at one point in the unwinding process, so be ready. can go outside and throw it. :)
