    I just changed the blade in my rotary cutter .... soooo nice. I don't know why I always wait so long to change it!

    I do the same thing. Try to get the most mileage out of it and then realize how silly I am. :D

    Yes, yes, why don't we change those things more often? I wish the blades were cheaper. I'd change mine daily. I bet arthritis drugs cost more than new rotary blades. My elbow is messed up and in need of new blades.

    I always wait too long because I think they're expensive. I can't wait to get my hands on those harbor freight blades and then i'll change them all the time!

    I just changed mine too a few days ago! What a HUGE difference. Everytime I promise myself that I will change more often ... but .... I am a creature of some bad habits.
    I did not realize just how dull , till the new one was in... WOW.

    Yep, we are creatures of habit. Let's all vow to "cut like buttah" and change those blades. I don't work for Fiskars I promise! LOL!

    Amen. I just find myself bearing down harder and harder, when it would be easier to just go ahead and change the blade! Need to do a better job of changing them more often.

    And now that we know about the Harbor Freight blades, we can do it more often sooooo cheap. Been using one all week, not even a little dull.

    Can someone PLEASE show me a link to their blades?? I have searched and come up with bandsaw blades, utility blades, but no rotary blades. Thanks!
