    Exclamation Harbor Frieght

    I need to replace my rotary blades so I decided to try Harbor Freight. I have read about the rotary blades people find there. The clerk thought I had lost my mind and had no idea what I was talking about so I decided to go to their online store. Then I had no idea what packaging I was looking for. Can someone post me a picture? Or tell me what they call their blades?

    Also Please, how do I search for something on the site? I am sure the info is here some place I just don't know how to find it.

    Thanks

    Go in the store and ask where the carpet tool are (for laying carpet!). My store is in the back isle at the middle of The store.

    they're the carpet cutter blades. they work pretty good, considering the price. not as sharp as real quilting blades (I prefer Olfa) but the price is right (about $2.00) and they come 2 to a package

    I am not particularly picky, but with the ones that I have, I've noticed that they are not as sharp as the Olfa ones.

    I bough some of these and ended up tossing them out. I don't know if I just got a bad batch but they were terribly dull and more "gnawed" their way through the fabric instead of cutting. I stick with Olfa now.

    I have gotten the occasional dull blade, but at less than a dollar I just put in another.
