    I got mine the other day they had to get an older man to know what I was looking for, I took all 3 packs he had and he says to me doing a lot of carpeting? I said no sewing. Will check when I get down there again for more. Over 50 miles one way/
    They are not with the sissors and other cutting things, over by carpeting supplies.

    I guess I am looking at the wrong blades. However, I didn't see any blades for 1.49. I will look again when I'm in that part of town.

    Thanks much

    Maybe the ones I got are from a bad batch, but they are dull and skip. I got 2 packs @ $1.49/pk. I've tried a blade from each pack, on two different cutters, and they cut like reg. Olfa blades that have been used for a while, have to recut and use lots of pressure. I'll be keeping them to cut paper or household use.

    NO they do not cut the mats. It doesn't even leave a mark. They cut like a hot knife through butter.

    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.[/quote]

    Yup you are looking at the wrong thing. On page 2 or so is a picture of the package. Hope this helps.

    That's too bad, because mine cuts so smoothly. I know someone who put 2 blades into the cutter and didn't realize it .. and they wouldn't but nice. Maybe you could check to see if you accidentally did that?

    Went to 2 stores in the west area of Phoenix, they didn't have and knew nothing about them. We looked high and low.

    Does Harbor Freight sell online?
    I glanced at the Internet and saw
    where I could find a store (quite a
    few miles away) but no online sales.
    Might have missed it.
    Should anyone have such an address,
    please let me and the rest of us know.

    Our HF store had only 45's ,2 in a pk. for $1.49. The kicker was they were located in the paint area on a wall display. I gave mine to a fabric shop to see how they work and in 4 days there was already occasional skips. So maybe a good deal...maybe not.

    Try these. We purchased these a while back with no problems.
    Free shipping also. You also can make an offer as we did for an even cheaper price

    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.
    what you need to do is get rid of that white mat ! they dull
    your blades. bought 1 pkg of blades,works great. DH measured them & there is only 2 thousandths of an inch difference in the thickness. (hope I said that right). the hole in the middle is different but can't see where that matters.

    My hubby went to HF yesterday and they were completely sold out and said there were none in the warehouse nationwide for back order!

    There is one more near us but I don't want to drive all the way over there and keep forgetting to call to see if they have any in the store.

    Can you believe it! Sold out nationwide?

    The HFT store in Tallahassee, FL has the blades in stock I called tonight. I live 60 miles from there and they won't ship from their store so I am out of luck.

    I bought some of those suction cup ruler holders at HFT. They were in the automotive department, used for putting in windshields. I think it was less than $8. I also got one of the smaller ones for 2.99, but can't remember where that was at in the store, it wasn't near the big one.

    Well we don't have a HF here . But surely there must be other palces that sell these blades. Does any one know where these places are?

    I'd never heard of Harbor Freight until I read about it on this site. I've already bought so much to use for quilting - all ideas from all of you! I was just there today and picked up the last pack of blades. Haven't tried them out in my rotary cutter yet.
