    My SIL went to HF yesterday and found 2 pkgs of the blades and bought them for me. Sales person told him some lady had called in for 4 pkgs and that was all they had. They were
    99 cents per pkg of 2.

    The last time I looked at 45mm blades at Hancock Fabrics they were $24.99 for 5 blades. You people have found a treasure at Harbor Freight. I have never heard of that store.

    I'm off topic here, RaptureReady, but what is the name of the block in the quilt in your ID block? I've been trying to learn to quilt for 25 years but haven't made a lot of headway.

    I just called HF in my area and was told that they have gone up on the price from $1.49 to $1.99. Interesting. You can get a raincheck for the $1.49 price and the rain check does not expire.

    They work in Fiskar's 45mm. That's all I've tried.

    Thanks so much for all the information. Wow, I learn more ever day from this board. I just typed in for a store close to us here in Madison, WI. and was so happy to see one in Verona, WI. not far from us. I called and they are out of blades, will have more in 3 weeks. The cost is $1.99 pkg. Thanks again....

There is also a place on the web where you can get blades sharpened but I am waiting until I have at least 20 used blades to not pay too much in shipping.
    They did offer a sharpener on ebay for sharpening blades.

    I bought HF out of the 8 packs in stock at 1.49 each and I'm willing to share. I don't go through blades all that fast and even if I have to pay 1.99 for replacements down the road, it won't be that big of a deal. Sooo...I will share 5 packs. I'll send them at cost plus postage. I'd like them to go to one or more of you who does not have access to Harbor Freight and it would really be a big help for you to get them this way.(I can also check a couple other stores in the area by phone, but would need to add some extra for gas to make a special trip to buy more for sharing.) Just PM if you are interested.

    I got the 8 packages left in Woodbridge, VA. The manager asked me what I was going to do with them. I smiled and asked if he thought I couldn't install carpet because I was a girl. He said no and looked a little lost so I let him off the hook and said there were for cutting fabric and JoAnn's (next door to his HF) wants $6 each for these blades. So, he said, good to know where to send the carpet guys for refills until his stock comes back in. I thought that was very funny.

    Why doesn't someone invent a rotary blade sharpener?

I told them to order more because they were going to be selling like hotcakes since quilters had found them.
    I finally found a store with them and the package was 2.00 but still better than 4.50 a piece, so I got four packages.
    That's 8 blades and should last a good while. I also got several other things...it's a manly store, but us girls like it to....LOL!!!
    (what commercial did I borrow that from?)
