    Harbor Freight Blades

    While back there was talk of using these blades for rotary cutters. Which blades are we talking about? They have a couple? Thanks

    They're called carpet cutting blades. I use them all the time and love them.

    I too use them - they are pretty good and a great value.

    I went out and bought them and thought they were horrible. Probably depends if you get a good batch or not.

    I have used a lot of them and had a couple of bad ones. I figure for 1.99 a package making them $1.00 each I can throw the bad ones away and still come out ahead.

    I get a dud in my batch every so often - by and large they're a great buy and when they are good, they really are.

    Use them all the time, and love them, never got a hold of a bad one yet.

    I prefer the blades from LP sharp Company(lpsharp.com) they are inexpensive and made for rotary cutters. I tried Harbor Freight and did not like them.

    I have had bad luck with the quilting name brand blades at times as well as a dud or two from Harbor Freight. Would I rather have a dud at a $1.00 or considerably more? I just wish HF carried other sizes.

    Go to Harbor Freight.com and order on line. Carpet blades. I just received my second batch of 10 pkgs. Love them. Since they are so inexpensive I can give them away to friends (and my DD) when needed. Never got a bad one yet.

    I ordered 10 packs for a total of 20 blades and only one was any good. HF sent replacement blades and only 3 of those were any good. Think I'll try the LP Sharp Co. next time.
