    Harbor Freight Rotary Blades

    Have any of you anywhere in the U.S. had problems recently with the Harbor Freight blades?

    Haven't bought any recently, but I was disappointed in the ones I bought last year.

    I got a few problem ones. But at less than a buck a piece I am not gonna complain. I just use the bad ones for cutting paper.

    I've had a few duds, but for the price, I don't care.

    I go on ebay and get the olfa for less than 1/2 price of what they cost at Joanns so I don't bother with Harbor Freight, I did buy my magnetic bars there. For $5.00, they hold all my scissors, and other things that seems to have little feet.

    Same with me. Ocasionally get a bad one. Way cheaper the Olif nad just as good. Infact my Quilting group tied them and are now using them.

    I recently for the first time bought a pack of two and was very disappointed. Gave me fits, so I put my old blades back in the cutter and its funny how well they worked (comparatively speaking that is.) From the comments here it sounds as though sometimes you get good ones and sometimes not. I am taking mine back and will try another pack. If they don't work I'll take them back too.
