First of all: the current price is a real bargain! I bought the serger here in Germany for almost the same price, BUT in Euro.
The reason for the dropping price is for sure that so many owners (especially beginners) are facing so much trouble with it (I suppose that every third or fourth machine is returned to Amazon).
Which is NOT necessary at all. As other reviewers mentioned several times, reading the funny manual is the clue.
The machine is a real good and sturdy one, the only thing is that you need to learn how to handle it. If you are a real beginner and/or tend to be impatient, this is not the machine for you to buy. Go and find a simple one to start with.
For all the others: take that little money and buy this item. And in addition download the workbook and then: learn and practice.
For those who are not familiar with the current brand-mix: Singer, Pfaff and Husqvarna Viking are ONE enterprise (SVP worldwide) since a couple of years. Have a look in the internet and compare the following machines: Singer Professional 5, Pfaff Coverlock 3.0 and 4.0 and Husqvarna Viking Huskylock S25 (Maybe some of them are not available in the US, google it anyway). Don't be fooled by the external design, they LOOK different, but they aren't. Inside you'll find exactly the same mechanism (except the Pfaff 4.0 and HV Huskylock S25 which come with an electronic display, but this is more or less the only difference). If you compare the manuals which are available as downloads as well, it becomes quite clear, that the basic chassis is the same. What's not the same is the price.
If you get the Singer serger you will have a Pfaff Coverlock 3.0 in a different design and without extension table.
Regarding the problems with stitching and broken threads/needles:
Take the money you've saved and buy QUALITY overlock thread and be sure to use the correct needles; regular standard needles for conventional household sewing machines don't fit. Yes, in this case size matters! :-)
Especially when using the cover-stitch it is essential to use real quality yarn. Imagine how much money you spent on the machine compared to the price of some spools of good thread. Another reason is that you spent time and sometimes nerves on your sewing projects and if you are using quality thread it will stay for several years and washing cycles without breaking. By the way: quality thread even LOOKS better on garments... :-)
Another very simply thing you should always keep in mind: When changing or replacing the needles, be sure to put them in COMPLETELY, this is very easy when you loosen ALL screws and then slide in the needles thoroughly before tighten the screws again (please tighten ALL screws, even those which are not in use, a serger's needle bar is a high-speed thing and if screws are not tightened you may find them anywhere else or not at all and need to see your local dealer frequently to buy new ones). The space in the needle holder is very limited and if you don't loosen the screw next to the one which secures the needle you are replacing, the screw next to it will block the way for the needle which results in improper needle position which is essential for timing with the loopers. If there is a difference far less than 1 millimeter (sorry, European :-)), it won't work and it is NOT a failure of the machine. It needs to be set-up properly to get proper results.
Last not least for those who have problems with the automatic tension: do what is mentioned in the manual: after re-threading the machine set the ATD-knob again to the appropriate position, simply re-dial the ATD when all your desired threads are properly inserted into the tension discs. Rule of thumb: Skipped stitches=needle problem (broken or improperly inserted needle), loose, fluffily seams: tension issue (thread not inserted properly into discs, wrong program or dirt/dust between the tension discs) :-)
When sewing the 2-thread-cover-stitch keep in mind, that the thread for the right seam takes the path which usually is the one for the upper looper!!! When stitching the wide 2-thread-cover-stitch the regular path for the right needle thread is NOT in use!!!
I hope it was a bit helpful, greetings from Berlin and have as much fun with your serger as I do :-)
So ... here's what I've found out ...
1. If you are a beginner at serging, this is NOT the machine for you. You need to know what the 'guts' of a simple serger look like in order to sit and figure out what all the 'new' stuff is.
2. If anyone thinks they can make heads or tails of this machine and actually USE it out of the box without taking the time to download the 'workbook' and taking the time to LEARN the machine, please re-think. The manual is just a basic 'look-up' guide for after you've used the 'workbook'.
3. Contrary to what many people have said in their reviews, the machine is not difficult to thread at all. You just have to know what you're looking at. That's where the workbook comes in. And, while the photos and hand-drawn pictures are all black and white, and should be color due to color-coding on the machine, they are pretty comprehensive.
4. The machine serges like a dream. And the cover stitch is something I've wanted for a long while ... and here's the HOWEVER ...
HOWEVER ... While using this machine it brought to mind the people who complained about purchasing a 'sewing/embroidery' machine and got rid of their sewing machine ... They found out they couldn't sew while the machine was doing the embroidery. Same thing applies here ... you cannot serge while in cover stitch mode, and there is more to changing from one mode to the other than just flipping the upper cutting blade ... like switching out needles and re-threading.
Unfortunately, I had to send this machine back, as I would have to be changing needles and re-threading for every seam BECAUSE I sew as many of my seams as I can in a pseudo 'flat-fell', and that requires 2 machines.
So, I ordered a new serger, (another Singer) which is almost as good as the serger part of this machine (does not do the chain stitching), and will have to continue to use my '2-needle' needle on my sewing machine for hems and flat-felling while I decide if saving my pennies to purchase a dedicated cover stitch machine would be worth it (probably not).
Be sure you have plenty of TIME before you sit down with this machine to figure it out. It is not something you will pull out of the box and use for production immediately. I have been sewing for over 54 years and owned a serger for over 20. I sew quite frequently, most days of the week, in fact. It took me a good 3 days to understand the manuals, what part of the machine to use for which stitch, and how to set the machine up for each stitch.
