    The Harbor Freight blades I looked at didn't have the same kind of hole that my Olfa blades do. What part number did you order?

    the number is 97642... If you read the other 'rotary blade from HF' thread, it tells which cutter the HF blades do not fit. I understand there is only one, and I don't think it was the Olfa, but I'm not sure which it was, so you might want to read to be certain. I think the HF blade has a rather generic hole that fits most cutters. It fit both of mine just fine.

    You find them at Harbor Freight in the carpet cutting tools department. They are called "Replacement Carpet Cutter Blades" and are item number 95378.

    I was just thinking this today, as I was cutting some strips and then had to use scissors to cut through the parts that the rotary cutter didn't quite get.

    Hmmm, I am just wondering why my blades have a different number than yours do Audrey. I just double checked mine and they are 97642 definitely. I wonder if it's to do with where in the country one is located? Well, as long as we are getting them and they are working, I guess that's all that matters. Smiles and hugs,

    I read on QB about turning blades over. Today I tried it and the blade went through 4 layers like a hot knife through butter!

    i just stopped in at harbor freight this evening and they were out of the blade replacements but they had the carpet knife with 3 blades in the pack for only $3.99 so i got that for now. can't wait to try them out and get sharp cuts again. the carpet cutter with the 3 blades in the pack is item #95378 if that helps you all find it.

    I just checked at Harbor Freight for the replacement blades and they're charging $1.99 for 2 blades......I should've put my order in sooner. Oh well, still cheaper than Joanns!!

    Thank you for the link. I ordered some. Wonder how long the back order will last. Guess time will tell.
    Were they still $1.49? I just ordered some & they are $1.99!

    Sorry, I used this link & could not find rotary blades?? All I saw were CARPET blades? I have been hearing a lot about Harbor Freight for tools but did not know they carried rotary blades? Anyone else have a link I could try? :arrow: :?:

    OOPS! Sorry again...found them by the picture. Are they 45mm or 60mm???They are big! If you watch Joanns online, they will have a package of 10 for $17! That's for the 28mm but that's the one I use the most. That's a great buy! It will be interesting to see how well-liked the blades are & how long they last?

    Speaking of Rotary blades. I went to HF in Hemet Ca and they did't even know what I was talking about. Did find some great craft scissors tho.

    I sharpen mine just about every time I go to use mine.but then I also have to rember which one I was using though to.I have gotten really lucky an bought a couple for 2.00 apiece thats the 45mm ones an then I have three of the smaller ones an then i have one that is the smallest one to an have one 60mm blade on a 45mmhandle no guards on it so I don't use it much afraid i'll get a finger or something cut with it an have 18month grandson that comes over an I don't like to have it out when he's around.

    OMG I went to Harbor Freights and got my blades for my rotary cutter and they fit perfect..Two of them for $1.49 i think it was. I am going back and buying them out. I also found the magnatic ashtrays and I bought the small one for my pins..Luv it..I found a long power strip that you can plug in 12 things at a time, like irons, sewing machines, lights and whatever you need to sew with. It will come in handy when I got to sewing retreats...I luv that store..

    LOVE THE PUGS! I have 2 also, a fawn and a silver. I like the 28mm blades too and always watch for a JOanns coupon or a 40% off sale. Going to try the Harbor Freight since everyone says they last so long and are so inexpensive.

    Has anyone ever used the blade sharpeners. I have seen them in Joanns, and in connecting threads catalogue and other catalogue. Are they worth it.?
