    For rotary cutters...I have a 45 mm Olfa rotary cutter and I've heard a lot of people suggest Harbor Freight carpet cutter replacement blades. My question is, my little thing on the rotary cutter is not a perfect circle and the whole in the blade is. Would it still work?

    They work fine in my Olfa cutter, and, at the price, it's worth a try!

    I have them and they work - I don't think they are the best ones around...sometimes they have little spots that don't cut right....my experience anyway.

    They'll work just fine, but some of mine have a "skip" on them, but at that price I can afford to throw a few away!!

    I started off liking the Harbor Freight blades, but the last six or so have been awful....with nicks already. Very frustrating, as I still have several packages of them.

    At a buck apiece, I do like Eleanor Burns does and toss them over my shoulder and break out a new one. I'd still rather work through a few bad ones, not that I've found many, than the pay the ridiculous high prices at Jo-Anns or my LQS.

    Yes, I was in there looking for something else last week, and found them on sale in my local store. Bought three packs, as I have not tried them before. 6 blades for the price of one elsewhere. Haven't tried them yet tho'. Been so sick I haven't even felt like sewing. Now that is sick!!!

    I think they last a lot longer than the regular blades I bought from JoAnns.
