So I've read that hemostats are great for turning small things inside out.  I've been looking into getting one and saw that amazon has a bunch of different kinds.  They have small ones and long ones and curved ones and ones that are bent at an angle and all various different combinations in between!  Is there any one kind that is better than another one?

Hi, I have a small strait one i bought for making small teddies but have used it on larger projects too. They work well although on some small pieces the slightly curved ones would come in handy. I guess it depends what you would like to use them with. Hope this helps. Smiley

I use the pair that came with my little kit I bought from a scrub shop!

Any place that sells Medical Scrubs and clothing will sell them.  You don't need all those fancy pairs.  Just a plain ol' pair. 

You also need to know that when turning in a tight space, the teeth of the hemostat can tear the fabric!  You just have to be careful, and mindful of what you are doing.
