    Just a curious question. I have seen several references to rotary blades 2/$1.99 that are actually carpet blades. Can someone tell me if they are 60mm size, larger or smaller? And, do they fit the olfa handles? Also, are they available in carpet supply stores or somewhere else. I live in NE Iowa and would like to find a few if they work with my Olfa.

    Harbor Freight carpet blades are 45mm and can be purchased in their stores and online.

    Yup, 45, and they'll fit any cutter that uses that size.

    Harbor Freight does not carry the 60mm blades, only the 45mm. They are wonderful. They also carry great stackable containers for FQs.
