New one for me -

Have this ever happened to you?

I decided that it was time to change the blade in my rotary cutter -

And I always wonder why I wait so long to do that - ;))

Anyway -

This is what I got on the first cut -

WITH a new blade!

Sorry, folks - this ain’t right -

A NEW blade shouldn’t chew up my fabric like this -

So what happened?

What did I do wrong?

I took the rotary cutter apart to check the blade -

It’s not like I haven’t changed the blade before - ;))

Except that I have never done THIS before -

I found that I had loaded TWO blades -

They are so thin that two had stuck together -

And BOTH of them were cutting my fabric -

No wonder it chewed up the edge -

I’ve done some dumb stuff before -

But never this -

So - it’s a new one for me - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. Yep! Been there. Done that! And almost did it the next time I changed blades. Sheesh!! Isn't it amazing how much nicer a good sharp blade is? Why do we wait so long?

  2. Okay, that one is a new one for me.... but I bet next time I change the blade in my rotary cutter, I'll give it a second look :-)
    Thanks for the tip!

  3. I have done that actually---just once though. I know on an older package of blades the oil dries up between them and then you don't necessarily see that there is more than one. I tend to use a 60mm more than the 45 so that is the one that welded together, LOL


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
