Hi, again!

If you find a good source, please share it. I also order from the Wooden Teddy. They are the most reasonable cost, but they do take a long time to get to me. I don’t think that there were any customs or border fees though. When I ordered, I ordered a LOT because I only want to do so once a year or so. Since I do design work and not a lot of production work, I don’t really eat up blades a lot. Keith I use the Mach Speed blades in size 3 for most of our production cutting so we were sure to order more of them.

I know places like Busy Bee have some Olson blades, but the cost for them is high. To us, we were better off ordering from the Wooden Teddy and getting the larger quantities than picking around here, as we are rural Nova Scotia and in the same boat as you with deliveries. I am anxious to see what others here in Canada say. :)
