How often do you change your rotary cutter blades? Chances are not often enough! They do get expensive after a while and the blade sharpeners don't seem to work all that well. I have found a great option! The blades you see on the left are sold at Harbor Freight (yes, the tool store, that your husband may go to occasionally) as replacement blades for a carpet cutter. They fit a 45mm rotary cutter and are a great value at $1.99 for two. That is a fraction of the cost of the name brands blades that do the same thing! I have heard some say they don't stay sharp as long, but at that price I can afford to change them as often as I should be anyway! If you don't have a harbor freight near you, go in together with some friends to save on shipping and purchase them online here:
