    Just ordered blades from Harbor Freight. They are on back order. Called the office and expected delievery date to them is Oct. 1, 2010. Will charge my credit card when they are shipped to me. What I have now will last me until then!

    Ouch I did that once and sliced right across my thumb had to go to the ER and the thing is I did not feel it until I saw the blood dripping on my nice white fabric I was cutting the blade is so sharp it just sliced away Ouch again

    Wow! My husband is in town looking for parts for his tractor. I called him and asked him to stop by our local store and pick up two packs. This may be a bad move as he will find all kinds of toys for himself there. Oh well! They have 20 packs in stock. If of you are in the San Antonio, TX area you can stop there and pick some up. No shipping, just our typical tax!!!

    Thank you all for this great info. DH went on the internet to see if anyone could beat the price, and he said NO ONE. I know they are on backorder, but, I ordered some today. Don't mind the wait, I still have enough to work with yet.

    Went and bought 10 packs today at the Daytona beach Harbor Frieght store.At first,I ordered them on line and then I decided to drive down and get them and save the S&H.The owner said that he had a room full. .I called and cancelled my on line order.They also have the those super grip suction mount handles for $6.99 each.They are exactly what they sell in the quilt stores for a whole lot more!!!!!These are blue and the ones for quilters are purple.There is no difference in them except the color!They suction to your rulers for those who may not know what they are.They are used on bathtubs as safety grips.

    I've been buying them for a while and have a stock of them in a container. They don't fit every brand of cutter but the ones you've all listed work fine. I've also told a friend so her husband picks them up for her when he's in HF. I love HF!

    Always trying to take our bonuses away lol.
    Went to Harbor Freight this morning and bought blades they had a lot of them, I even bought the cutter and got two more blades woowoo

    I bought the cutter with two more blades figured I could use it for something since it was so cheap, maybe even paper that I will not use my good cutters for.

    Excellent suggestion!! I bet it would make a good paper cutter! I maybe I would try it on Batting, or fleece ...oh... the possibilities!

    Stopped in Harbor Freight on my lunch hour and bought the last 10 cutter blades packages, the cashier said they had 90 but over the last 3 days people have been coming in. We have two Harbor Freight Stores here in Nashville, if you want me to pick up and blades when they are stocked let me know by PM, dont mind shopping at all.

    Great, but do they really fit the Olfa and Clover cutters, or do you have to get the rug cutters?

    They sell the blades seperate.There are two in each pack. I know that they fit the Olfa and the Dritz,but if I am correct someone on here said that they wouldn't fit the Clover ones.

    I wonder what HF thinks about the run on these blades all of a sudden. Did any of you buyers tell them what we use them for? My DH came home with two packs. He said the salesman had to rummage for them as he never saw them before or sold any. At least now he knows where they are at in his store.I'll go back tomorrow and get some more. I'll also want to look at the cutters and price them. I have a flyer my husband came home with. Some really cute solar yard lights on sale also. I know I have to go there tomorrow.(LOL)

    Harbor Frieght has their corporate offices in my town. I drive by them on my way to work. Maybe I will have to stop in after work to the store and see if they have them.
    I just got back from HF and tried the blade in my fiskar and my Martelli cutters. Works just fine! I have the 45mm martelli cutter.

    I wish they had the 60 mm for the Martelli.That is the size that I have and it sure is in need of some cheap blades like the 45mm at Harbor Freight.No luck getting them.I tried.They don't carry that size.
