    Hello, just yesterday I received the rotary blades ordered from that company that sells them as carpet cutters. (I forget their name--I'm at work). I did notice that the hole is round and am wondering if that will be a problem--the rotary cutters have a hole that looks somewhat like a hexagon or something.? just wondering about this while I'm at work--yea, I'm working too.

    I may have to try these. I just found out that we have a Harbor Freight store about 30 minutes from home. It is close the the long arm quilter that is quilting a quilt for me.

    Do you mean the hole in the blade?
    Mine are round but one side is straight,
    to keep the blade from slipping I suppose.

    I had to do the same thing. I just threw the cutter out. (After remiving the blade). lol

    I have used my carpet blades for about a month now and haven't seen any wear on my olfa cutter. I have a new olfa rotary cutter to compare it to and it doesn't look any different than the new one.

    Good Luck
