I've still got - and use - my one and only original Olfa from 1991, which was when I started quiltmaking!MeganSydney, Australia
32 years! wow! I am sure if i ever have to buy a new rotary cutter it will be because i have lost one of the little washers or something.
I am still using my first Olfa cutter that I bought sometime around 1985. I didn't use it when I made my first quilt which was hand pieced and hand quilted.The pieces were cut using templates and a scissors but when I trimmed my borders after I quilted it I used my rotary cutter and moved on to strip piecing and machine piecing and I never looked back.BTW I just bought a pack of 10 Olfa 45mm blades on Amazon for $21.86; that is better than 50% off at Joanns.
I always detested changing blades on my original Olfa cutter. When the new quick change cutter came out, I bought it, gave away the old one, and I have.never.looked.back. :-)
Next time don't take it apart near the heaty vent!
