    But I also found Super Grip Handles there exactly like the one they sell in the Keepsake quilting catalog. KQ sells for 14.99 The one at HF was only 6.99

    I love going to the hardware store for quilting supplies!

    Again Thank you!!!

    My husband bought me my compressor at HF. I have various things from HF and our guild members LOVE that store.

    Does anyone know of a Harbor Freight store in New Hampshire?

    I tried a Loew's over the weekend in upstate New York; they don't carry round carpet cutters blades.
    I live in NH also I did a search for stores within 100 miles and there are HF's in MA, CT, and RI. I work in MA so I may take a trip to Worcester one day.

    Lakayser,

    I had a problem figuring it out as well-but one of our fellow quilters posted a pic of them-if you have a Harbor Freight near you (the online store is backordered on these blades), then the item number for the blades is: 97642. They come 2/pkg at 1.49. That is a steal.

    All but the very old computerized machines have a magnetic shield. There is no worry with a magnet pin cushion being around the machine.

    Call ahead of time and have them check their inventory.
    My store was showing 6 packets and had zero in the store.
    Online they are back ordered with no notification when they come in. The only thin you can do is continually call the store every week...

    The notched edges around the center of an Olfa blade are for built-in obsolescence. In other words, they work kind of like a saw-blade, and will eventually saw off the post the blade is attached to, making it necessary to buy a new Olfa rotary cutter, not just replace the blades. That is what I heard another rotary cutter company explain at a booth at the Sewing Expo in Puyallup, WA a couple of years ago.

    The Fiskars replacement blades are round in the center, exactly like the ones found at Harbor Freight. They have always worked perfectly well in my Olfa cutters, and are usually less expensive. Now, can't wait to go to town for a visit to Harbor Freight!!

    To be sure of your size, trace around your old blade and take the paper with you...............

    I am trying to figure out what a super grip holder is too. I Google it but it doesn't go anywhere that I think a quilter would use it.

    There is a safety grip handle under the assisted living section that I found. The cutter blades fit an Olfa cutter.

    these have suction cups

    And what are they? I think I figured it out. I saw that its a handle with suction cups on it that grips your ruler when cutting.

    Don't forget about the 20% coupon and coupon for a free small LED flashlight for Harbor Freight in your Sunday coupon flyer sections too.
