Rapid Eyeletter still being made in the USA
A POSITIVE LEGACY OF ATLAS TACK - Rapid Eyeletter machine once made by the Peerless Machine Company and modified by machinists at Fairhaven's Atlas Tack is still being produced today by United Global Supply in Middleboro, MA. "The parts, castings and patterns for the machine are from the original machine as made by the Peerless Machine Company and modified by Atlas Tack Co. The only modification is use of standard United Shoe setting tools." Charlie Williams of UGS. *ML's Note: I recently posted some old Atas Tack memorabilia which included this machine. Nice to see "MADE IN THE USA" not being used as a punch line. http://www.unitedglobalsupply.com/
