This Juki has it all. It is very stable--never moves around when you're serging--has a wonderful knife set-up that cuts through anything smoothly, and has a beautiful rolled hem, either two or three thread. It doesn't have the jet air threading of the Baby Locks, but threads easily. Everything is color-coded. The tensions are also very easy to set. I haven't had any problem with them at all.
I would advise you also to order a good, basic serger book because the instruction book with this Juki doesn't explain how to make the variety of stitches that are possible with it. With most of them you just have to tweak the tensions or stitch length or width, all easy to do on this machine. The electronic, high end machines (that go for a thousand dollars or more) will either make these adjustments automatically, or tell you how to do them on the screen, but I find a good serger book works just as well, and is much, much cheaper.
Do be aware that this machine does not have a coverstitch, or coverhem, as it is sometimes called. It's the two or three thread stitch used to hem knits. To get this stitch you need to buy an expensive, high-end combo serger, or a separate coverstitch machine.Read more ›
First off, I ordered the machine "used-like new" from the warehouse deals. It was $368 and it came in its original package; the only thing that was missing was the original thread. I was disappointed at first, because I was hoping to see how it was threaded right out of the factory. It still had the grey thread tangled in the loopers which made me hang my head even lower, thinking "looks like the previous owner had issues with the stitch, threading, or loopers".
I bought the book Successful Serging: From Setup to Simple and Specialty Stitches in advance because I had read that the user manual is not all that user friendly. I was determined to brace the threading storm and get acquainted with the machine at once.
The user manual is actually not bad at all. I managed to get the Juki threaded correctly on my first try-the key is to make sure the loopers just cross after the lower looper snaps back in place. I also made sure the tension dials were at 1 when I threaded it and when it purred to life the overlock it produced was impressive. The lower looper need a slight tweak, but that was it.
The booklet has one downfall though: it does not speak about how to produce a flatlock seam; no biggie, I have the book and there are plenty of tutorials available online.
I decided to change it to a 3-thread overlock and it was a breeze. Threading the second time around was even easier, and in retrospect I was so apprehensive of something that turned out to be quite easy.Read more ›
