Nick Ciancio has been fixing sewing machines ever since he was knocked back from the police force for being too short. (He went on to become a gold medal-winning weight lifter, so it wasn’t for lack of physical prowess.) A lot may have changed over the ensuing 42 years, but Nick – fit as a fiddle – has never missed a day of work.
We featured Nick’s story – along with other fixers like him – in Smith volume 13, which is on shelves in Australia right now. You can purchase a copy here, find your closest stockist here, or subscribe here.
