I got a pkg. of the HF blades , but haven't tried them yet. But with my expensive blades , I cut through several layers of tin foil several times , & they give me a lot more cutting after that. I was just wondering if that might work with these if you get a bad one.

I've never had a problem with them - my problem is I still forget to change them to new ones - but that is my trait. :-)

I have not had a lot of luck with them either.

I bought them & they have worked really well. Beats spending high $ ones…

Bought them, returned them, enough said. You get what you pay for and these are worthless. I told their customer service rep they should stop saying quilters use them.

You are certainly entitled to your opinion and there are some who agree with you. But there are also a bunch of us who have had good luck with them. So I hope Harbor Freight doesn't change anything. To each his own.

You can buy 100 Olfa 45 mm blades on eBay right now for $95 with free shipping. That's less than $1 each - I'm still working on my first batch of 100 blades. At this price, I change them frequently.

They had a hard time finding them in my store. We finally located them in the department where they have the supplies for cutting rugs.

I will never waste my money on Harbor Freight blades again. If they do work, I have to press so hard my hand and wrist begin to hurt. They skip and shred my fabric. They damage my cutting mats. I have to make several cuts to cut my material completely. There is no comparison between them and the brand name blades. Watch for sales and buy a blade that works.
