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 -

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?

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!

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
