With my TS, I have the arbor shaft wrench, the arbor nut wrench, a hex
driver that matches my Incra miter gauge screws, a hex wrench for the
inserts, and of course the inserts and blades. I have several inserts,
for different kerfs and with and without built-in splitters.
As another example, my BS has hex wrenches, a wrench for the tension
nuts, screw drivers, a blade back stone, etc... Same for the jointer,
the drum sander, the mortiser...
These are stored at the tool.
This can often be done for only a few bucks per stationary tool using
cheap or garage sale tools.

Suggested modification to the rule:
Start the clock when you turn the saw off after finishing a cut. Stop
the clock when you start the saw to begin a cut with the new blade.
That would be the amount of time added to change to a new blade
instead of simply going on to the next cut with the same blade.
Objectively, I'm sure you're right. I've never timed it and would
probably be surprised at how little actual clock time is needed to
exchange blades. But, subjectively, when I'm all primed to make the
next cut, it sure seems to take forever.
