The Spiral Eye needle, is made by my manufacturer in Dayton MN. Unity Tool Inc.
It is a small family run business and I can go in at any time and talk to the engineer that manages changes to my design, or the employee that makes the points and the
eyeless needle eye, or the employee that cuts the eyes into them, or the one that heat treats them, or the person who deburrs them, or the person who inspects them,
etc. Every person there takes great pride in their responsibility for the product they make for me. The owner, his wife and their son are my main contacts there. They
are very quality focused. I am extremely happy with their work.
Spiral Eye Needles are made from 100% surgical stainless steel and are inspected by the manufacturer and then by me, one needle at a time. I personally put every
needle in the package so I handle every single one. If you get a defective one I am to blame.
The machine needle is actually made using a German made SCHMETZ brand machine needle. I chose them because they are the highest quality. My manufacturer than
puts my patented eye into the SCHMETZ needle. Other companies, including SCHMETZ, make open eyed machine needles, but those snag or come unthreaded if you
sew too fast. The design of my open eyed machine needle is open below the eye in the point area of the needle which eliminated the snagging and dropping of the
thread. But, again, it costs more because it is a complicated cut into a very small piece of metal and cannot be made mass produced yet.
I stand behind my Spiral Eye Needle. If you are unhappy, return it and I will refund your money.
