    I'd had to re-order after waiting 3 mos on back-order but nice surprise after waiting only 2 wks! Didn't think they were right at first because hole is just round and didn't look big enough, but, lo and hark, fits just fine and rolls really well. So SHARP! Got 10 pks, maybe I should re-order now?

    They are heavily oiled and one had a bit of packaging gunk on it, but no harm.

    Now to get the "Cutting Edge" ruler thing figured out....

    There was a thread on Qb a couple of days ago that the Cutting Edge ruler was not all it was made out to be, Hope you like yours. It ruined a couple of the ladys blades.

    Yep, mine too, and is not accurate on that edge. Hence my contacting them.

    Same here!
    I ordered my blades in August (this year!)
    Over the months, I got several postcards stating that the blades were on backorder. I got some other blades and waited and waited....
    Finally, I got a postcard stating that they would send the blades on November 19th. November 19th came and went, no blades arrived. I checked my order status and discovered after a phone call that my order had been cancelled!
    Well, you will just have to re-order them (at a higher price) the Harbor Freight representative said. You've got to realize that it has been a while! (Like I was to blame for it!)

    I paid the higher price this time, but I will be sure to find a more reasonable, reliable and more honest vendor. I paid US$ 12.00 more for their shenanigans!
    I won't need anything from them again.

    I can understand how you feel, but now that they know how much of a seller they will be, maybe service will be better and even at $1.99 there is no way I could beat that! I'll just re-order when I get down to 2 pks left!

    Well, by the time I have worn down the 40 blades I bought I will have probably forgotten my anger.

    Right now however, I bought an electric saw elsewhere. I did not even look at their website. There is a way for customers to react to a bad attitude.
