    This is an old topic but finally was able to get to Harbor Freight and bought "45mm replacement blades" for my Fiskar Rotary cutter. They are sold as "replacement carpet cutter blades" # 97642, $1.49 for a pkg of 2. I was to cheap to pay the shipping and knew I would be going to Spokane so waited. Actually sent my husband in and he bought 4 pkgs.
    Not sure who first mentioned these but THANK YOU and to all the newbies, this is a GREAT buy.

    OOPS! :)
    Would they not let you exchange for the correct size?

    No, they only make one size for the carpet cutting blades unfortunately. Hopefully they let her return them.

    Or maybe it's a good time to invest in a 45mm cutter?

    I was very disapointed when I went they were out of blades. Would have 32 pkgs next day. We live about 60 miles from Tulsa so I won't be back for a while.

    I didn't even try to return them. Put them away for now & sometime soon I will use a JoAnn's coupon & get me a 45mm. Especially since my 60mm is just about ready for a new blade :D

    Oh yea! I couldn't believe the savings. I always thought it was crazy that we had to pay so much for blades and when i saw all the posts about HF I just had to order. Not only can I get the round ones-I found out I can get my wallpaper blades ( I'm a wp hanger) about 75 percent cheaper. yea to harbor freight and yea to the quilting board!

    Took me 2 tries to actually find them in stock. $1.49 made my day. I bought 8 packages & didn't realize there were 2 in each one. Made me even happier!!LOL

    I also have ordered blades from them and love them My husband ordered me 80 packages on line, they said they were back ordered but two days later they were shipped. One of my friends said she had a cutter that didn't take the round center and I told here for the price of the blades it is worth going and buying a cutter that took HF blades.

    Do you know if they have a 60mm? We're no where near a Harbor Freight right now but will be traveling again soon.

    NEVER MIND --- THEY'RE ON BACK ORDER! I went straight to the web site to order these blades and remembered someone else had said there was ANOTHER great item that HF carries. I hate to pay shipping on just 5 packs of blades! What was that item?

    Our local HF had to triple their orders. We quilters kept buying them out.

    I am so sad about this. We pay about $15 each for a rotary blade in Australia, and $20 for a large blade. So when I saw the first thread on Harbour Freight I tried to order the blades on line. Guess what, I can't buy on line. I contacted the store to find out why not, and had a very nice email back explaining that they cannot be shipped overseas as they are classed as weapons!
