    Anyone that purchased the blades, waiting for back order, did you receive an email from them stating that they received your order and you can track and what not.
    You have to create an account to do that. I created one and it does not show anything ordered by me.
    Did anyone else start an account? Did you try to track it? Does it show or does it show only when they are ready to ship it?

    Carpet cutter blades that will fit most 45 mm rotary cutters.

    I went to our local store today and hey didn't have any. Somehow, I picked up $50 worth of stuff that looked interesting or useful. Very dangerous little store.

    I just checked their website. The size is for 1 3/4" blade. Isn't that too small for a 45mm cutter?

    The Sacramento Fruitridge store was out too. But, I bought the actual carpet cutter, which comes with 3 blades. I think it will work for cutting batting:>

    That's cool, I get blamed for everything else. Just ask my older brother, he blamed me for catching our Dad's car on fire and I wasn't even allowed to drive it without Dad in it. (learner's permit)

    I've missed out on this discussion for awhile. Did anyone ever comment if these blades are ok to use on quilt cutting mats?

    My DH found me one of those handles for my rulers at HF. Was about $6. Course this is after he bought one from a quilt place for $15! Oh well, now I don't have to change it out for different rulers.

    Here they are, sometimes when they are on sale there is a smaller one for 99 cents. Just got to love this store.

    I just ordered the blades from Harbor Freight. Now I read that they are not as sharp as our "competitors". I hope not.

    The other things that I found at our local HF was the little magnetic parts dish. I like to sit in the TV room and hand sew and this keeps my scissors, needles and anything else dangerous, right in the dish. I can't tell you how many needles I've'lost' on the couch...but my husband can. OUCH! Also, I found a telescoping mirror that is really small, about 2" diameter. I thought this would be very handy for threading the 'loop' on my serger. Haven't tried it yet but it moves in all directions and is just the right size. Now, you ladies, don't all go at the same time and bombard HF!!

    False alarm
    On the website, it says my order shipped, I got a card in the mail telling me my order was backlogged. Contacted them and they said the same. The item I purchased is on back order. Guess I am with the rest of you in waiting.

    My visit to Harbor Freight was very informative.

    I told the cashier I was checking on the blades. She said she would check to see if they had any in the stock room.

    She followed that with telling me the computer stated the Warehouse is out of blades. They are ALL GONE!!!
    Blame the Quilters.

    She gave me a rain check and said it would be 4 or 5 weeks and asked how many packages I wanted. I asked for 10. I will parcel them out according to who wants them and how many. Should I have reserved more? Who wants and needs blades???

    I just got a card from them, saying they were still on backorder and wanting to know if I still wanted them. If not I was to send the card back. I did not. I will wait on backorder, since I do have some blades to work with, I appricate your offer to get a rain check for the rest of us who need them. If I don't receive any blades by Oct, Nov, then I may ask if you could get a rain check or have some sent to me, since I do not live near any harbor freight.
    Thank you again
