Sourcing and purchasing a 43200G couldn’t have come at a better time. My Union Special 56400P was basically letting me know that I was busting it’s balls on these 19oz double felled and lapped inseam hems and 24 oz hem jobs.
I am in the process of arranging to have the 43200G mounted on a table so I can get it hemming asap. This machine may just be for alterations in the future. I have a different machine in mind for the jeans on my production line. In any case, this will serve well for alterations and a back up in case my ideas don’t quite work out.
I won’t do the whole “vintage 43200G have been discontinued… we found one from the depths of hell” spiel, as most of you are probably tired of reading that same old story by now.
Here are a few photos of the machine though.
Oh and just before I forget. No post about a 43200G is complete without these few words. Chain-stitch, rope fade blah blah blah blah blah….
