serger thread and trim

I’ve spent the past few days trying to get the tension correct on my sergers and I give up. I’ve cleaned them, oiled them, read the manual and my serger guide. I think they’re just too manual for me. If they were cameras, I’d be trading them in for a point-and-click model. In fact, I’m going to check out some point-and-click sergers this weekend.

If you are interested in some super clean, vintage Baby Locks, let me know!

    Sometimes the tension issues can be about how the machine is threaded (you have to really yank the thread into the tension dial). I wish I were there I’d love to help figure it out. I much prefer the older machines myself for the same reasons you do. Plastic just breaks down too quickly.
