    I did get a cutting glove AKA fishermans' filet glove at HF, also the cotton gloves with rubber dots on them to hold on to fabric when quilting. The filet glove was about $7.50 and the dotted ones cost ,e abpit $1/50 for 3 pairs. JoAnns wanted $25.00 for the cutting glove from F & P. :lol:

    This board is awesome! Just ran out out to HF at lunch time and scoffed up 9 pkgs of the blades at $1.49 ea. I am wondering if anyone has tried the carpet cutter they have that the blades are for? That was $3.99, I didn't get that, if it works, I can always stop in for that too.

    When I heard about this, I went to there website and at first ordered 5 packages. I also had set up an account after that so I could trace the order. It never showed as me having ordered. Called them and they said under $10.00 dollars they would not hold or have a backorder on. They automatically had canceled that order, but, I never received any notice from them.
    I went back to the website and ordered 10 now I am sitting on the backorder list with some of you

    Before I went to local HF I went on line and found them- wrote down the article # price- and how they are sold. So I was ready whenever someone asked what they were and what they were used for. I took all they had and that was 5 packs at $1.49 per pack. Thanx to the Ladies here that gave a good heads up on that big savings for us quilters.

    Alright. I think I understand now, although no one ever answered my question about what kind of blades these are, if they fit standard rotary cutters, etc. I will try to find them here at our local HFT.

    I just went to the HF in Albany since I am out of town there at the moment and bought the last two that they had. I also bought the cutter thinking it might be nice to use for when I cut template plastic... we shall see.
    When I told hubby about this he tried to make it sound like I didn't need it because I bought 2 blades when on clearance a month ago. I wanted to tell him that I don't say a word when he spends tons of money to play golf and all the tournaments he has joined this year, but I bit my lip (hold that for something more expensive :lol: ) Thanks for the info gals!! I now have more stuff in my pile for when I need them!

    I have a question about these blades, do they hurt your cutting mat? I was wondering about them, we don't have any of those stores around here and I have never heard of them before, and was wondering if you could order the blades on line or not. Will be waiting for any of your answers and thanks in advance for the info.

    Donnasue, the blades are for the 45mm rotory cutters.

    A few people keep asking about whether these blades will cut the mat. Now really, I don't GET that question. If the blade is dull enough to not mar the mat, it's too dull to use. And my mat is showing lots of wear and tear before I ever even heard of these HF blades (this is the BIG white mat from Joanns) Haven't tried cutting on a green or grey mat yet.

    I have 2 of the BIG white ones from JoAnn. I use them for garment layouts, but they are permanently damaged by rotary blades, although I have had them for 18 years and have used rotary cutters on them.. The green or gray ones resist the cuttting much better.

    Look for the sign that says carpet tools and you will find them. There is a picture here on this thread on page two I think.

    They are exactly the same blades as you buy from the fabric store - they are less expensive and packaged different. But they work just like the more expensive ones. So it follows that if the ones you use not don't hurt your mat these will not either. Happy hunting. I love my new blades from HF

    They are carpet blades and fit any round hole 45mm quilting cutter. Told they are better and last longer. Found packages of 2 for a $1 and some odd cents at HFT

    Mine was sold out of blades so I bought the cutter for $3.99. When I got home I discovered there were 4 blades in the package. That works for me. :)

    If you still don't know what we are talking about, go back to page one, or to the other subjeft "Rotor blades" which has 15 pages worth of comments and answers almost all of the questions being repeated. There are pictures of the blades and the packaging. Enjoy

    I went to our Harbor Freight store the other day, and they
    did not have the blades and they did not seem to even know
    what I was talking about. Hubby says we'll go this weekend
    and check out another one that waaaay out of town. Hes so
    sweet to volunteer to go that far for me.

    My only addition to this would be to be really careful opening the package, they are shrink wrapped tightly. Catlady - if you are near Loves Park in N. IL, they are out right now. I got the last few pkgs. they had last Thurs. Sorry:(

They were such hot cakes, why are they not selling now? Imagine the repercussion of all of this!

    Now that 80% of members on this board have already bought some of those blades from HFT my husband started giggling. Can you use pizzacutter blades and can you use those? Can we? How much are they? Carpet layers cannot do their work as they cannot get their blades replaced and then we won't be able to get any pizzas either for lack of cutters.
    What a blast!
    My HFT doesn't have the correct blades. What types of blades did you say they were and how much were they? The ones I saw today were 9.99 and up and had little funny edges on them.
    Maybe I am looking at the wrong blades.

    You are looking at the wrong blades. A pack of two is $1.49. There are also cutters with three blades for $3.99. If they are out, you may want to buy those, still cheaper than those at JoAnn's with a 40% discount. They are 45' blades.
