The Almighty Union Special

Made in the USA and the pride of Chicago. These heavy duty sewers are made for just about any kind of sewing job that needs to be done. I started noticing these machines when I was looking up different denim manufactures in the US and Japan. If your denim is hand made and from either the USA or Japan, it was made with a Union Special. I always wanted to learn how to use one of these beasts so I can do all my own alterations, but they are way to expensive to own. If I ever get that store started, one of these vintage bad boys will be in the middle of the sales floor.

Here is the machine at work... look at go through layers of leather like butter
