    I'm going to go to Harbor Freight tomorrow. Read through all the post and need to make sure I am not forgetting anything.

    purchasing (if they have)
    -bath safety grip handle
    -4" magnetic parts tray
    -telescoping magnetic pickup tool
    -24 container storage box (for feet)


    the rotary blades wont fit my 60m rotary cutter so I will not be getting them. Is there anything else I am forgeting?

    Heather...what about clamps?? to hold your quilt in place while you baste it??
    We shop at harbor freight when we go to Redding for DR appts. None close by where I live now. They are 125 miles one way (redding, calif) and 80 miles the other way (medford, oregon)
    I didn't know they sold the rotary blades. I will have to look the next time we go..which will be on the 18th of this month for DH's DR appt.

    They are for carpet cutting from my understanding of reading thorugh all the past posts on here. About $1.99 for 2 blades that will fit a 45mm rotary cutter.

    Never been to a Harbor Freight, so I searched online and found that there are stores within driving distance of me. I think I can easily talk hubby into taking a look!!

    Question ... I looked through just about every category, and searched site for "rotary cutting blade" and "rotary blade" and could not find anything remotely similar. What does Harbor Freight call them, and what department are they in?

    Saw a few other neat things that I want like the bendy dryer vent brush.

    Why not get and use the 45 size rortary cutter?At $1.49 (my last purchase) it's worth having one.

    I might need to. However the closest HF is over an hour away. I did in fact buy three packages. Now I need to get to JoAnne's and use my coupon(if they are no already on sale!).

    Just a note about these blades. They are made for cutting carpet. IMHO.....they seem to be much sharper blades than the ones we buy made for quilting.

    With that said....please be very careful when first using them.

    Does anyone know if this kite needs a tail, and where would one put it? I have been having trouble getting mine to stay stable once it's in the air...

    IMO, the HF blades lasted a heck of lot longer than brand name rotary blades.

    I ordered the blades on line - got 20 for the same shipping price as if I had ordered 1 pkg, so I thought "Make it worth the postage" LOL I'm set for a long time.

    Can't tell you how many times I've read about ordering HF online. Finally took the hint and ordered 10 sets of blades, one magnetic tray, and a swivel head lamp,

    Our HF is tucked away in an inconvenient spot, so I don't like to go there. And the shipping cost is just barely more than the gas to drive there.

    AND I DON'T GET FRUSTRATED FINDING STUFF.

    Thanks, Folks!
