Has anyone ordered blades from US Cutter? I see they have the 60 degree carbide ones but they don't look like the cricut blades. I have read where these Roland brand will work in the cricut machine.

Anyone have experience with them?

I'm looking for a better product that may last longer...

Thanks!!!!!

I use those blades all the time, except I get them off ebay, 5 blades for $9.00. I have had no problem and I like how they come in different widths.

Where do you get them for 9 dollars? That's a great price.
TIA

Roland blades in general work great. I buy off ebay as well, usually getting them for under $2 a blade. I prefer the 60 degree ("deep cut"), but the 45 degree (standard) are fine. 30 degree blades are best for vinyl, not paper.

I have purchased these blades for two years and really like them. I also purchased from a different seller on eBay, and I didn't like their blades as well as the ones from US Cutter. I say definitely give them a try!

I order the 60 degree Roland Carbide blades. They work great. I think cut more accurately. The 60 degree cuts the smaller details better on the intricate cartridges. Grab some 45 degree Roland Carbide blades because they work better for simple cuts and vinyl. The 30 degree Carbide blades weed vinyl better. If you cut a lot of vinyl you will want to add the 30 degree blades to your collection. If your are an occasional vinyl user the 45 degree are fine.

I use them too, the difference in what my expression can do with tiny cuts is nothing short of amazing... I have a bunch of cricut blades I need to sell or toss as I will never go back to them! I'll have to try the 60, I was only using those for chipboard and acetate but maybe I can get even better cuts on paper with them :D

Just saw everyone's post re: these blades and was cking out on Google...now are they US Cutters "Cemented" blades Roland Carbide? Don't want to get the wrong thing. And they really cut better than the cricut blades. I seem to go thru them like there is no tomorrow, cricut blades that is. Getting where it is becoming really expensive. Glad I saw this post. Appreciate the sharing of info. TIA for exact title so I don't get wrong thing. BigGrin

Just want to add that USCutter is a reputable supplier. I have bought vinyl (regular and HTV) from them on a number of occasions with good results.

I just 60 degree blades for the first time this week. I still had a few little pieces attached, but I do think that they cut better.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/...trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

Here is the ebay auction I purchased them from. Timely shipping, even if it was from HongKong.

Can you use these Roland blades in the normal green Cricut housing or do I need to buy the deep cut blade housing? I am going to purchase some 60 degree blades. I am considering also getting some 45 degree blades for regular cardstock.
Here is my question on that subject...am I better off to just switch to the 60 degree blade for all my cutting? Will this give me better cuts on the more detailed images?
I have bookmarked the ebay site and am just waiting for your answers so I can order.
Thank you one and all!
