    Just a curious question. I have seen several references to rotary blades 2/$1.99 that are actually carpet blades. Can someone tell me if they are 60mm size, larger or smaller? And, do they fit the olfa handles? Also, are they available in carpet supply stores or somewhere else. I live in NE Iowa and would like to find a few if they work with my Olfa.

    Harbor Freight carpet blades are 45mm and can be purchased in their stores and online.

    Yup, 45, and they'll fit any cutter that uses that size.

    Harbor Freight does not carry the 60mm blades, only the 45mm. They are wonderful. They also carry great stackable containers for FQs.

    Fat Quarter stackables 67134 only available in store


    24 handy containers $4.99 90243

    the little flashlight is the handiest thing. There is a small spotlight on the edge and a full side light. There is also a hanger. Love this when I can't see to thread the needle or drop something on the floor. It is only $3.99.

    If you ever get to go to the store, check all the isles. There are so many things that can be used by quilters/sewers.
