Have you heard about Harbor Freight? They were selling their blades 2 for $1.69 now they raised them to $1.99 and they are backordered These are 45mm
We have a Harbor Freight in town, but it is a tool store. Is that what you are speaking of????
Yes, that is Harbor Freight, they have blades that fit our 45 mm and from what I hear, other things that a quilter can use

I have found that if you put the fold next to you rather than away from you, you get a straighter cut.

I use the 28 mm one also! I thought I was the only one left using this one! I also have a 45, but use the 28 the most. It just feels better, like I have more control. But of course, I like small things - - miniature quilts, tiny pieces of fabric, etc.

I like them both. I use the 60 when I want to cut a lot of layers at the same time.

Hi,
I have an inquiry about the blades at Harbor Freight, I went there yesterday and asked for them and was told that they did not carry them. But if i could get the part number and price the gentleman could look them up, could someone please give me this information.
Thanks, Marion
