    Rotary Blade Compatibility

    OK Ladies here is one for you.

    I have Olfa rotary cutters in sizes 45, 28, & 18mm. (The big J no longer carries 28 or 18 mm sizes, so if I'm gonna order them online, it'll be MSQC if possible.)
    Can I mix brands of blades in the cutters? You carry 18mm & 28mm in different brands and I'd like to know if they will work on my Olfa before I order them.

    Thanks.

    I have always mixed blade brands without any trouble. I have a Dritz cutter and I use Olfa or Fiskar blades (I prefer Fiskar). Barb

        I think most of them are interchangeable but I did see a cutter in one of my classes, I don't recall the name, that had a different shaped centre hole so the regular blades would not go on it. Fortunately one of the other ladies had a spare cutter that she leant to the lady because that one wasn't going to cut anything.

          Thank You All!

          Lynn, that was what I was afraid of. I see that the center holes are notched differently in the packaging and worried that they wouldn't fit on the center pin. Especially the 18mm as it has a hexagon shaped pin. I also read the the circle cutter takes it's own blades. I don't have one, so I'm not too worried about that yet!

          I shall try them and let you know! 'Cause the 28mm is about ready for cutting paper!
