Number 2 Cutter Cartridges for Townsend, BeeLine version of the Townsend and the Ault Wool Fabric Cutting Machine

UPDATE: April 24, 2019

The raw materials have been ordered and are on their way to our machinist in Plymouth, Ohio, USA.

Around 50 orders have been placed with Diana Kerns in Baltimore, MD. (410-467-4771)

Purchasers are now sending their payment by check to Diana who is compiling the master list of purchasers. A small number of purchasers have requested to be invoiced for payment by PayPal and that will be done yet this week.

We are getting close to the order cutoff date-April 30, 2019. If you have not ordered yours yet, please do so now. April 30 is just a few days from now. The full purchase price is $250.00 each plus $8.00 shipping. If shipping is international the shipping price is a little higher to cover our International costs. If there is a customs fee for international shipping, that cost will be the purchaser’s responsibility.

The machining will take about 5-6 weeks.

Then, in late June we will start assembling and testing for quality. We expect to ship some units as early as July 8th, 2019 and hope to finalize all shipping around August 1, 2019.

Now, we are sending out a “Great Big Thank You” to the Mason Dixon Rug Hookers group and especially to Diana for all she is doing to make this happen for Rug Hookers!!!!!!!!!!!!

Size #2 Cutter Cartridges for Townsend, BeeLine and Ault Machines

WOW!! For years rug hookers have been asking for #2 cutter cartridges for the above-mentioned machines. Initially, Townsend made and sold the #2. Then, some time ago the #2 cutters were discontinued. We know there is a demand for this size because Diana Kerns, from Baltimore, and I struck a deal. She is composing a list of rug hookers and I am working with our machinist to manufacture a one-time only batch of parts to assemble these #2 cutter cartridges.

Currently, Diana has a list of 34 rug hookers who want the #2. Her list grows every week. If you have any interest in getting one of these one-time-only cutter cartridges, NOW is the time to let us know you are interested in getting one. This may be your only chance to ever get a #2 for these very popular machines.

Since I do not read the replies to this post every day, please call me to discuss this opportunity (419-347-9957). We expect to be ready to ship these cutter heads by not later than July 1, 2019. To get on the purchase list you will make a commitment by ordering yours from Diana Kerns or from Ault’s Rug Hooking Equipment Co. They are selling for $250.00 each and shipping to the lower 48 states is $8.00. Other destinations will be charged whatever the USPS charges us to deliver to you. We will invoice you for costs that exceed $8.00.

I hope you will call us ASAP with your name, address, phone number, and email address to finalize your order. WOW! WOW! WOW!

Please DO Not Call the toll free number. We no longer have it but someone does. 

This is an example of what you will get, except this is a #9.

Ault’s Rug Hooking Equipment Co. -October and November,2018

After a very slow summer here at Ault’s, we are now getting back into the swing of things. In the past 10 days, we vended at the Crooked River Hookin last Saturday when almost 150 rug hookers gathered to celebrate Hooktober Fest. A really nice day was had by all. Thank you to the sponsors of the event.

As many of you know, we specialize in new and used equipment for rug hooking. We have used Fraser and Rigby machines priced from $150.00 to $325.00. The price varies according to Make, Model, and Age of the machine. These are machines we get here as trade-ins for our Ault’s Wool Fabric Cutting machine. We clean, lubricate, adjust and fix any issues. Then we sell them to mostly newer rug hookers since it is an easy way to get into hooking without spending several hundred dollars. Please call us at 419-347-9957 if you have questions about these used models.

Another way we are supporting the rug hooking industry is by manufacturing cutter heads and cleaning fingers for Rigby machines. I believe Rigby has closed down manufacturing but there are many good machines still cutting wool every day. We have several sizes of new cutter heads and the matching cleaning finger, including size 5,6,8 and 3/8 inch. Also, we have quite a few smaller sizes that we have sharpened to a like-new condition. Cutter heads are $62.50 each (plus shipping) and matching cleaning fingers are $12.50 each.

If you are ready to get a brand new Ault’s Wool Fabric Cutting Machine, we have them in stock and ready to ship. Similar to the older Townsend machines, ours uses drop-in, lift-out cutter cartridges. No adjusting the machine to cut the size strips you want. Our cutter cartridges also fit the machines that were made by Townsend.
The machine retails for $315.00 and each cutter cartridge is $175.00. Includes a nice fabric carrying case to protect your machine. Shipping is $20.00 to the continental USA.

Our web pages are being brightened up for easier use. Our Grand Daughter is into that new stuff and she is doing the design work. The new site may be available around years end.

That’s all for now. More next month. Be sure to call us if you have equipment questions.

Attention Rigby Machine Owners- New Cutter Heads Now Available

Most of you know how difficult it has been to get new Rigby Cutter Heads. Difficult for a long time and now I believe they are out of business. So, when you have an opportunity to get new cutter heads, jump on it. We currently have our Ault’s sizes 5,6,8 and 3/8″ heads and cleaning fingers in stock and ready to ship. They fit Rigby H, D and C machines.

Now here’s the deal on getting the 1/2″ cutter head and cleaning finger. Lots of Primitive Rug Hookers have asked about this size. We are going to help you save money ($6.50) on the 1/2″ parts. Here’s how you proceed and save a few dollars. This also helps me get an idea of about how many to have made.

I have a GoFundMe account set up for you to use while ordering these parts. Please help me fund the initial machine work by giving my GoFundMe Account an order, via your donation. Your out-of-pocket cost is $75.00 to donate to the fund. And for that, you will get a brand new cutter head and cleaning finger from us as soon as we have them in stock. You will be saving $6.50 with each GoFundMe deposit you make.

This is probably a one-time deal to get this wide strip cutter head for your Rigby H, D or C machine. So, don’t let this deal slip away without ordering from the following address:

Thank you for participating!! Please help me spread the word about the 1/2″ cutters by telling others who have a Rigby machine about the GoFundMe account.

Ault’s Rug Hooking Equipment Company–June 2018 Newsletter

Cut Loads of hooking strips in NO Time-well almost !!!

We have a supply of dies for cutting rug hooking strips. These dies are 6 inches wide and work in the Sizzix Big Shot Plus machine. We stock the machine in limited numbers and occasionally see the machine on the internet for less than we retail it for. So, it pays to check around to see if you can find a deal on the machine. 

With our Sizzix dies you cut around 20 strips at a time and you can cut strips up to about 50 inches long, depending on how you fold the wool and place it on the die. Our supply currently consists of the Big Shot Plus Machine-($160.00), dies size 6, 8 and 9 ($199.00) and if you need the pressure plates (you do unless you already have the appropriate size of pressure plate for the 25″ die) ($29.99).

Please call me at 419-347-9957 if you are interested in knowing more about this cutting system.

I have two used Kit Maker cutter cartridges in stock. They were made by Townsend and fit the Townsend or BeeLine machines. I have sizes 8L and 9.5L. I also have the matching cutting plates needed to make these cutter cartridges work in your machine. Each one is $199.95 plus shipping with the cutter plates. I am selling these but cannot make a refund if you decide they are not for you.

Ault’s Roller Frames

For years we have built frames for rug hooking. We make three sizes, 11 by 14″, 15 by 22″, another one that is about 15 by 27″.

11 by 14″ Roller Frame $159.95

15 by 22″ Favorite Roller Frame $189.95
