I am looking to buy a basic, reliable serger to speed up my sewing. I don't mind complicated threading as long as the stitching is good. But I don't know much about sergers at all.

Called my regular dealer, and he suggested this used Elna T34D that he has. Supposed to be a quality 3 or 4 thread serger, but apart from that, I can't really find any reviews or opinions online.

So, do you have any experience with this machine and what is your opinion on it? Do you know when it was made?

I really like older style machines, and hope to find a sturdy, used serger. Could this be it?

It is offered to me for about $150 wit ha 2 year warranty.

Thank you for replying :-)

I could not find a PR review for that model. I got my first serger for $250. It wasn't the greatest but I learned on it. With dealer support you will probably do OK. After you learn serging you will know what features you like and can sell this one if you decide you don't like it. So it may be a very good introduction into serging.

Make sure it has differential feed.

Also try it out of fabric you use.
