For Sale–Original Townsend Fabric Cutting Machine–Looks New

We get lots of requests for used Townsend or Ault Machines. These used machines are “scarce as hens teeth”. Last week we were having trouble with the TV in Gloria’s hooking room. I had to dig around behind and under the TV cabinet. After getting lots of wool out of the way, guess what. I found her original Townsend machine. It is serial number FCA031119.This is the original Townsend machine we got when they first came out. The only reason Glo does not use this machine is because we manufacture the “Ault” machine and it would not look good for her to be using the competition.

I also have a reconditioned size 8 Long, they called them “Kit Maker” cutter cartridge. The Long size 8 cranks a little stiffly but as I recall all the Longs ¬†cranked that way. And, sometimes you need to help the strips come completely apart. I have both sets of in-feed, out-feed plates with the machine so either regular or long cartridges can be used.

The machine body looks and works like it did when new. I have priced the complete set, (the cutter body, both sizes of feed plates, and the used Kit Maker size 8 cutter cartridge) at $525.00 plus $20.00 shipping to continental US. Although the cutter body looks and works like new there is no warranty or refund available on this purchase.

If you are interested in this machine, please call me at 419-347-9957. Do not respond to this post as I may not see your reply.

Less Expensive Wool Fabric Cutting Machines for Beginners

The Beeline/Townsend and Ault Wool Fabric cutting machines are great and easy to use. But, if you need a less expensive machine, we have some very nice used and reconditioned Fraser and Rigby machines. We take trade-ins when a rug hooker moves up to our Ault machine and we purchase used machines. We always clean, lubricate and re-condition every used machine before we sell it. They work like they did when new when they arrive at your address.

We have several Rigby H and D machines as well as Fraser 500-1 machines ready to ship. To ask questions or place an order, please contact me at 419-347-9957. Machines start at $95.00 and up to $275.00 for newer machines in really nice condition. We have several Rigby Model D machines that come to you with two new cutter heads installed and ready to make strips.

If you want to get one of these re-conditioned machines, don’t wait any longer. They are priced to sell and will work like new. Hope to hear from you soon.

Cutter Heads For Rigby Model D and H Machines

Over the last several years we have had many requests for cutter heads and cleaning fingers to fit Rigby Model D and H machines. The supply on the open market has been nearly zero. Here at Ault’s Rug Hooking we now have a supply of several sizes in stock and ready to ship.

We have sizes 5,6,8 and 3/8″ cutter heads and matching cleaning fingers. These are currently the most popular sizes that most rug hookers are looking for. We also have a few slightly used #3 and #4 cutter heads and fingers in stock for those who need cutter heads for the narrower strips.

You can purchase cutter heads and matching cleaning fingers by calling me to place an order. I can be reached at 419-347-9957. New cutter heads retail for $60.00 each and the matching cleaning finger, if you need it, is $10.00 . Shipping is $5.00 for one or two sets. For larger orders I need to calculate the cost. I ship by US Priority Mail to continental USA and welcome International orders. The exact International shipping cost is calculated after you place the order but is in the $10.00 to $15.00 range, depending on your location and the weight of the order.

So You Got A Gift Card to Lowe’s but Wanted Rug Hooking Equipment

I may be able to help you convert your unused gift card into rug hooking equipment. I’ll take your unused gift card in on trade (oh, what a deal) for our famous Ault’s lift-out, drop-in fabric cutter. Or, maybe you want to get a used fabric cutter but have been afraid to buy one from EBay since you are not sure of its condition. Or, maybe you want a different frame or hook.

If you have a new, unused, gift card I will give you 95% of its face value as trade-in on any of our rug hooking equipment or supplies. I have tons of re-conditioned wool fabric cutting machines that are ready to go to work for you. These machines are priced from $195 to $325.00, depending on brand and model. We clean, lubricate and adjust Fraser and Rigby machines to work just like they did when new.

So, how do you turn your gift card into rug hooking equipment here at Ault’s? Just call me (419-347-9957) to see if I can use your gift card. I might not be interested in a gift card at Victoria’s Secret but then I might be really interested in one from Sears, or Menards or Best Buy or (I think you get the point) Cabela’s.

This gift card trade-in deal is only good until Saturday, January 14th, 2017. After that I guess you will have to use it at Lowe’s for some lumber and duck tape. Call me soon to get in on this opportunity.

Happy New Year from Ault’s Rug Hooking Equipment Co.

Thank You From Ault’s Rug Hooking For A Successful 2016

As we near Christmas of 2016, the schedule gets hectic here at Ault’s. So, here is our wish for you this year. May you have a Blessed Holiday Season and may 2017 be a joyful year for you. Please remember those who have great needs this time of year. Help where you can and pray for those who you cannot reach. My prayer list is long this year.

2016 was a different kind of year for us. We are still in the business of building and selling rug hooking equipment but we no longer keep regular store hours. We can always be reached by phone (419-347-9957) or email ( to set up an appointment to visit the store. Our web site store is still on the Internet at .

We continue to retail cutter heads (size 6 and 8 and maybe soon we will also have #5 and 3/8″) that fit the Rigby Model D and H. We discovered how many rug hookers needed new cutter heads for their Rigby. We also sell the Fraser 500-1 machine and all of the cutter heads that fit it. 2016 was the year we concentrated on re-conditioning and servicing used Rigby and Fraser machines so that we could help many rug hookers get a nice machine for lots less than new machine price. We continue to sell the Ault machine that uses the lift-out, drop in cutter heads that are so popular these days. Our Ault machine is $330.00 and cutter heads are $170 each.

Frames, floor stands, beautiful hooks and Proddy frames continue to be popular items in the store and on our web site. As many of you know we no longer retail wool and patterns and stay busy building, servicing and selling rug hooking equipment.

Happy Hooking!!!!!!!!

Looking for a rug hooking group within a One hour drive from Concordia, MO

I have a good customer who needs some help learning the ropes of rug hooking. She lives at Concordia, Missouri and is willing to drive for up to an hour or more to join a group or individual rug hookers. Since she is fairly new to rug hooking she could benefit greatly from being around other rug hookers.  If you know of a rug hookers group in her area, please contact me with contact info so she can check in with other rug hookers.

Thank you, 419-347-9957
