    I finally went to Harbor Freight tonight.... Of course all you gals talked everybody around me to get there first! I looked and looked, my DH asked about the blades and finally I found where they were SUPPOSE to be! Yep, they were all gone, but the cutter was there..... in the cutter package there are 3 blades, yep 3. It was $3.99. Well, I HAD to have a blade, mine is going skip, skip, skip and frustrating (I dropped it when it was open on a ceramic tile floor). So even though each blade was double what the single blades were it still was lots cheaper than Jo-Anns with a 40% off coupon. Of course I had to get a couple other things..... Did you all know they have a wrist magnet? I thought I'd try that out and see if it will work. Here is a pic of my finds. Just a few cents over 10 bucks!

    My great finds at HF!

    I have been using the wrist magnet pictured for a few weeks and love it. It is strong enought to hold all the pins, needles and even the screwdriver(that was an accident). :oops:

    I had to buy the same carpet cutter, mine was out of the blades too, but it is still a good deal, compaired to what they want at JAF for new blades! Keep calling them back to see when they have them in stock!

    There are stores in St Paul, Minneapolis, Duluth, Milwaukee and Green Bay. Also Rockford, IL. Just Google Harbor Freight, scroll to the bottom of the page click on store locator, put in your zip code and it will tell you where stores are up to a 200 mile radius.

    be careful with that wrist magnet if you have a computerized machine, it can really be a costly mistake if it gets too close; magnets clear computers! i do not allow magnets anywhere in my sewing room even though i did manage to get a re-furbished mother-board for $100 when a child decided to stick a magnet to the side of my machine to hold her little scissors. now NO MAGNETS ALLOWED
    i do not care how handy or cute they may be.
    but your finds look like great deals, i wish we had one of these stores here in northern Michigan.

    Here in the TX Panhandle we've got a Harbor Freight (Amarillo). So it's not entirely West Coast.

    I didn't realize this was a HF thread and posted another but when I ordered some (20 pkg) over the phone yesterday I found out that they're on back order and aren't expected in until Oct. It only a little more expensive to order them, you have to pay shipping. With all the taxes and shipping it's still only a shade over $1 a blade. My total was $40.48 for 40 blades. However, since our local store gets their trucks in on Monday and I was in town anyway.... I stopped and checked and got 5 pkgs yesterday.

    Thanks for posting the picture of the mini suction cup. When I went to HF for my blades, no one knew what the suction cup was or where to look for it. Now I have a part number - thanks.

    Hi All,
    I'm a lurker and I have a question about the carpet cutter.
    What are you using it on? I've never used one before but i'm assuming it isnt anything like a rotary cutter.
    TIA

    Their west coast warehouse is walking distance from where I am now at work. Their Corporate office is another 4 miles up the road. They do have a presence in So Cal.

    I have not gone by there and checked out the blades yet. I'm not sure if they will work as well in a Martelli cutter. Maybe if I think about it I will stop on my way home today. Problem is the freeway entrance is just before the corner where the Harbor Freight Shop is, I see it as I get on the frwy but then it's too late cause I'm in the wrong lane.

    I live in Camarillo. They are a stone's throw from where I work.
