    I did find something that had three blades in it,not telling that person might go in and buy all of those to.

    I have been to Harbor Freight 3 times looking for blades. They have been out of them each time. I guess I am just destined to buy my blades at Wal-Mart. Though, I was told by someone in my guild that the blades are too thick to fit in the June Taylor ruler with all the slits in it...Shape and Cut, I think it is called. Maybe I am better off without them, as I use that ruler a lot. :)

    I went to my local Harbor Freight and told the clerk I wanted them to special order ten packs of the blades for me, I had the part number with me, and they did. It took a month for them to come in but I did get them.

    Really, that's interesting. I have been checking at my HF and they have been out for 6 months. This past week the clerk looked up online and said the warehouse had 3 sets. Maybe I should do as you did and eventually get them. A month's wait isn't bad. I am very thankful my blade has been holding up well. :-D

    I had ordered mine online and the wait was about a month. They sent cards saying they were out and if I still wanted to wait. If you do it that way.. do not send the cards back. It will cancel your order

    Dina-the Harbor Freight rotary blades do just fine in my June Tailor Shape Cut. You can order the blades from Harbor Freight on the web though.

    What good news. Now that I know they do fit in the June Taylor Shape Cut, I will add Harbor Freight back on my list. Sooner or later they have to have them!! Right??

    I ordered 20 and with the shipping, the blades end up costing only about 99 each. :)

    On my way to the airport on Thursday I happened to pass HF. Because I had a few extra minutes I turned around and stopped in - it was my first visit. They had 3 packages of blades so I bought them all because of all the messages on this site. l haven't had a chance to use them yet because all my quilting materials are in the room with a sign on the door that says "enter at your own risk". I plan to reorganize the sewing room after everyone leaves and the holidays are over.

    I had my daughter & a friend of hers checking Harbor Freight in Watertown, NY. She sent me 10 sets of blades in my Christmas package. Guess I am set for awhile.

    I learned that Harbor Freight does not order a large amount of the carpet cutter blades. I have gone there just after their delivery, and never saw more than 10 except one time, and that time there were 11 packages. I purchased ALL of them and offered them for sale here. Postage is minimal, but if you want 5 packages it is going to cost more in postage because of the weight.

    I ordered 2 packs online a while ago. That's all I could order. The shipping was way more than the cost of the blades. Not sure if it was a good deal or not?

    I don't beleive that is true. I have them and if anything they are thinner that the regular blades that cost so much.

    Order on line, perhaps you will have better results.
