Review:
This machine serges beautifully and is easy to thread. It took me several re-threadings initially to get the stitch quality I was after, but practice makes perfect and I can now thread it correctly on the first try! There is a learning curve with sergers and I am still on it. I have started to experiment with the differential feed recently and am enjoying the results of my experiments. The Juki is lightweight, making it very portable for classes. The manual is a good overview of all that this little powerhouse is capable of doing. I am not yet confident enough to construct garments on it, but I use it for all of my finishing and find that it complements my efforts on a regular sewing machine. It takes any fabric with ease, from knits to silks, cottons and wools (my favourite fibres). This is a great little worker, producing consistent, beautiful stitching.

Troubleshooting:
This is a 3/4 thread serger, so to do a 2 thread flat lock, I would have to purchase an adaptor. This is not an issue for me at this point, but something to consider. The extra feet are quite pricey at the local dealership (65$ per), although I have found many online vendors that offer reasonably priced sets when I am ready to move on to other applications. These are minor concerns for me at this point, as I have only just begun my journey into the world of serging.

I am a beginner sewer and I bought a sewing machine and this serger because I know I will be continuing my learning to sew, now that my kids are getting more independent. Thanks for this helpful review. I am glad I bought the correct serger. and the price I paid for was 187 dollars and some cents with free shipping at amazon. it was a repackaged item but when I opened the box, the serger appeared to be not used at all, with the original threads still taped on the serger.
