Default Electric seam ripper..cost comparison

There is an electric seam ripper out there that quilters are paying $21.00 for on Amazon.

You can get the same machine (The one I use to trim my horse!) without the fancy name for $7.99 by buying a Wahl Pocket Pro.


Here's a video about how it works, and she is using the Wahl that I use.

I have one of those. Buried on a shelf somewhere in my sewing stuff. Too bad I never remember it and use my pointy seam ripper instead. Think I'll go find it now......

If you have a horse supply store nearby you can also get them there so you don't have to wait for delivery

Thank you Watson for sharing this information. I hope our local Tractor Supply carries this item.

Betty...they do, but they are the same price as those quilting ones.... That's crazy! Look at other tack shops. I can get them for less than $10.00 in Canada.

I bought a nose trimmer at Wallworld. Have used for ever, but be careful because if you don't get right on the thread seam it will cut whatever!!!!

I was shocked when my friend came back from the quilting show with one of these and said that she paid $25.00. I didn't have the heart to tell her I got one from Walmart for $6.00. I checked under the company sticky logo that was on it and it was a Wahl Trimmer. As we have all said before, if an item is used for some hobby, you can expect it to double or triple in price or whatever the market can bear.
