    My golly, I can't imagine how fortunate we are to find this deal. You are a dear to share the news. Of course, as soon as they learn we are buying up stock like mad, they'll raise the prices. Go figure. Thanks again.

    That's a great deal, can you get them from Home Depot also or Lowe's?

    I totally agree with you. It gets to be a sham! Blades at the QS and fabric stores are outrageous! Hope HF doesn't raise the price with the new demand.

    Thanks for the info. My son in law is a carpet installer and he never told me about these, wait until I see him next week, boy is he in trouble especially when he knows how much I quilt.

    Glad I was able to help. Nothing like a good bargain these days. I also use a Drywall square when cutting, it hooks on the edge of my cutting table and I get a nice straight cut every time.

    They fit 45mm rotary cutters, I have a Fiskar's cutter.

    I have enough blades to last me a year now.

    Yes, they'll fit the 45mm Olfa!! I just checked mine. It has a round peg for the blade to set on so that's all the blade needs is a round hole. I'm going to my Harbor Freight tomorrow to see if they have any of the blades available since they're on backorder on the website. I'll probably go to the next town too to buy some there if they have them,lol!! I'm stocking up if I can!!

    Thanks! :-D I'll see if we have a local store.

    They must be fairly new...I've been ebaying and checking out carpet stores but to no avail. I have learned a little about tools though and various saw blades, and other carpet cutting tools! haha...I did see an interesting electric fabric cutter...very pricey.

    Magpie,

    I love the quilt in your avatar. I especially love the colors chosen, the four direction, how appropriate for a Lakota Star Quilt. I am 1/4 Lakota and 1/2 Saginaw Chippewa.

    I just called HF and they only have two packages left!
    I put them on hold and will get them tomorrow.
    4 blades will hold me for awhile. At least until they get another order.

    Girl in store said they will have to limit how many a person can buy at a time. They are dangerous. I looked at her and "I am 61 years old I know how to use a blade and one will cut someone just as well at 20."

    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
    what does the cutter look like

    Thanks for letting us know they fit our ordinary rotary cutters. I like to change my blade often. Daily would be nice. Cheaper than arthritis meds for my elbow!

    This is the first I've heard of these - but sounds great. What size cutter do they fit? 28, 45, 60?

    I knew they could make those blades cheaper. I've used X'acto blades for 25+ years and they're not that pricey. It really surprised me about rotary cutter blades.

    I just placed an order for 20 blades after reading all these coments. With shipping, it's still only $2 per blade. I'm really tired of using blades longer than I should!!!!! because i think they're sooooooooooo expensive. It's a STUPID way to try to save money, because dull blades just make my blood pressure go up, and my accuracy go down!

    I wonder how their carpet cutting tool would work on fabric? It looks a bit bulky - BUT it's only $3.99, so I wonder if it's worth trying. I'll take a look when I get to Tucson for the winter. There's a Harbor store there.

    I had my husband go by Harbor Freight yesterday and get me a magnetic parts bowl for pins. Looks like now he gets to go back tomorrow for the blades. Do look for the ads in the Sunday paper and different places,AARP mag, etc. There is always the 20% off coupon but also for months now there is also a coupon for a little free LED flashlight, no purchase required. We get 2 every time we go in. I probably have close to 30. They are really good little flashlights.

    I was wondering about that. Thank you very much, and while I am at it - - thank you for the quilter who posted the link - - I was finding NOTHING by searching by myself. LOVE this community! Now! I am going to add sprinkler hoses that I am going back to shop for something else. Thank you for the tips and added help.

    HF confirmed my order, and so far they haven't told me it's on BACK order. That'll probably happen tomorrow!

    Where can I get these blades? Mine is about 6 months old because blades at JoAnn's are sooooo expensive even with 40% off. Do all carpet places have them or only arbor Freight? Where is arbor Freight?

    It is Harbor Freight and on the first page, if you keep reading down, you will find that these fit the 45mm cutters and a link to Harbor Freight.

    I think it is just a harbor freight item...I searched all over to find them at other carpet supply places but didn't see any.
    Also peeps...they have tons of coupons for the free flashlites on ebay! search under "Harbor Freight". Might as well save a little money since we'll all be shopping there from now on LOL! also they are selling tons of other coupons if you plan to buy something bigger like a set of tools or something manly like that....

    Oh thanks! I'm Blackfeet and Cree...I noticed your nice eagle on the aprons you did...might have to order some patches or something sometime. Was your embroidery machine hard to learn?
    Also....did you look at all my lone stars on my webshots? Beadwork and stuff there too.
