We now have a large supply of cutter heads that fit the Rigby Model H and D wool strip cutting machines. These have been very difficult to get for quite a long time. Currently we have the size 6 and 8 and we also have the matching cleaning fingers. The cutter head price is $59.95 plus $4.95 shipping. The cleaning fingers are $10.00 each and ship free when ordered with a cutter head.
To order these, please call me at 419-347-9957. I will ship next day after charging your credit card. They are guaranteed to fit and work.
Maybe it is the season or maybe there are just a lot of rug hookers looking for used fabric cutters. Whatever the reason, I have several requests for used Fraser and Bliss machines. We normally get several in on trade every year about this time, but right now I have more interested rug hookers who want to get a machine for cutting wool.
I purchase used machines and then service them to be sure they are dependable. Then we sell them mostly to newer rug hookers who don’t want to spend a lot of money on a new machine. Of course, we sell our Ault’s Wool Fabric Cutter and take used Fraser, Bliss and Rigby machines as part of the sale.
So, if you have a rug fabric cutting machine that is sitting idle, please give me a call at 419-347-9957 to discuss a deal. Or, bring it into the store at 49 East Main Street, Shelby, OH 44875.
They say it pays to advertise. About two months ago (September 2102) I blogged that we needed some used wool fabric cutters. Said we would take them in on trade for our Ault’s Machine or purchase from the owner. Well, we shook loose some Fraser Machines that are in very nice condition. I currently have two of those machines left. One of them is 2 years old and the other one is 4 years old. They look and work like new.
If you are a rug hooker who needs a like-new machine at a greatly reduced price (new now sells for over $300.00), please follow up with me on these Fraser 500-1 models. Both are priced at $195.00 each plus shipping. Please call my cell phone at 419.347.9957 if you need to know more about these cutters.
I also have a Fraser 500, the previous Fraser model for $135.00 and a previous version Rigby Model H for $125.00. Both are older but work fine.
If you are interested, don’t wait because these machines a too nice to last long here in the store.
Are you ready to move up to the newer style of strip cutting machine? Good! We continue to sell our Ault’s Rug Hooking Cutter Machine for $399.95. That includes the machine, a cutter head of your choice and a nifty canvas carrying case. We make sizes 4-10, including 8.5 and 9.5. Extra cutter heads are $124.95 each.
Many rug hookers have a nice older machine but don’t like the work and time it takes to change cutter heads. Our Ault’s machine is the solution. Easy to use, no wrenches or adjustments needed!!
Here is the solution if you have an older machine. Call us at 419-347-9957 to talk about trading in your old machine for a NEW Ault’s machine. We always have an outlet for your used machines. Beginning rug hookers like to purchase a less expensive machine until they know they are hooked on hooking.
Some of our customers have asked if the rug hooking wool sale is still going on. The answer is YES. We are trying to get our inventory back to a reasonable amount. Gloria has not ordered much since early in 2012 but we still have several hundred yards ready to cut and a lot of bolted wool material also. Wool is $19.95 per yard currently. To order our current swatch kit please call 419-347-9957 with your address and credit card info. The swatch kit is $5.00, including shipping to USA locations.
We will have the store closed this Friday and Saturday, April 20 and 21, 2012. This is for a 50 year class reunion event that we are attending.
Also the next Friday and Saturday, April 27 and 28, 2012, we will be closed so that we can vend at a rug hooking show at Saline (Ann Arbor), Michigan. The show is Saturday but we will travel and set up on Friday.

Last week we had 100 new rug hook shanks added to our inventory. They are made of steel, not brass, and they are magnetic for those of you who like to put your hook on a magnet to keep it handy. The new magnetic hooks are available in all of our custom turned handle shapes. These magnetic hooks are not on our web site yet but you can call us to order them (419-347-9957). The end of the hook is similar to the Hartman hook. The price is $34.95 plus shipping. The diameter of the shank is 5/16″. We have had these hook shanks coated with black oxide to keep then from rusting. You’ll like their look!!
If you like to get together with other rug hookers to work on projects, then this Saturday at Ault’s is for you. Bring a project to work on. Starts around 10:00 a.m. and ends when you are ready to go home. Restaurants close or bring a sack lunch. We are in Shelby, Ohio at 49 East Main Street.
