I went to Harbor Freight yesterday (they get their trucks on Mondays) and was able to get 5 pkgs of blades---total cost $8.10 for 10 blades. I also went online and ordered 20 packages. The total cost there was $40.48 but still not a bad price for 40 blades. However, the warehouse told me that they were out of them and the back order wouldn't be in until the first week in October. I told them to order more because they were going to be selling like hotcakes since quilters had found them.

I just hope our run on these babies don't make them decided they are their next gold mine and raise the price! :D

Can these blades be used in your regular cutter or do you have to also get the carpet cutter from Freight Habor to use them in? We have a Freight Habor about 30 miles from here but I haven't been able to make it there yet.

Could someone send me the link to the blades at Harbor Freight. I went in to the store last Sunday and the employees all thought I was out of my mind. Also, I can't seem to find them on their web site.

Thanks, Sandy

I went to HF yesterday and found the cutter and blades...I had to hunt for them..they were with in the painting supplies department????? Not with the regular blades and cutters. However, I got 19 pkgs and the salesgirl said her warehouse had 350+ in stock so she would get more next week.

Their customer service number is 1-800-423-2567.
After it picks up there's an auto answering thingy, press 1 to place a new order.
The product name is Carpet Cutter replacement blades and the number is # 97642

Eventually a real person comes on. Order the number of packages you want----they don't sell by the case or anything like that. They'll give you a price, plus tax, plus shipping and also a confirmation number. They'll also send you a confirmation email.
