Check them all, there's only one up here, a Dollar Tree, but with three to choose from you might get lucky.

Check your local dollar store, saw them at one nearby me for about $8.00.

Added: Wally World has them for $20.

I saw the same brand package at the corner drugstore this
morning, they were selling it for a whopping $ 59.95CDN.

Man you got a great deal!!!

Nice find, and soon as they find out can be used for modeling, price will jump to $29.99. LOL
Plus one could also do ones nails.

Could no resist that.

As one gets older Dykes are the preferred clipper.


Cheers



I used to use my dremel for my nails. Worked well to. This looks like it might be a bit handier than my dremel because the dremel's a rotary tool and this isn't.

They are great. Got me one a few days ago' the wife saw it now she has one. Of course we have different uses. Another cheap tool I use all the time: Wal mart make up department has for 9.95 a roto tool with some really fine sanding bits.
