I made it to the local (for me) Harbor Freight today, and indeed they had the carpet cutters and blades. And the price is 1.99 now here too.
Several cutters with blades were hanging on the racks, and I would have bought that if I had needed to, but they had 12 packages of 2 blades each hanging on a little hook, so I bought all of them.

Next we went to Jo-Ann's, Hobby Lobby, and Michael's, and wherever there were blades and cutters for sale, we looked at the prices.
DD and DS were gum-fuzzled at the prices quilter's have to pay for tools and equipments.

So it was a very good day in the neighborhood.

All our quilting blades are oily too, and yes I went to HF and picked up 7 packages, I had bought the cutter a while ago because they were out of the blades and I wanted to see how they lasted. I have had the same blade in for a couple of weeks now, and its still cutting like butter. I have to say I am the worlds worst on cutter blades. So for it to last that long, and several blocks later is almost a first. I didn't try to even take off the oil, it didn't seem to cause a problem and the blades I buy at quilt shop are oiled, so figured its a blade thing. But I love them and I love the price even better, am making another trip in a week or so to get some more. At that price who can go wrong and its not like they spoil or anything lol.
