This is a rock solid, workhorse of a serger. I got it because I did not want separate coverstitch and serger functions. Other reviews were good and I had Juki machines before and liked them.
Another reviewer has mentioned the necessity of downloading the TRAINING manuals for Juki technicians and to learn this machine this is an absolute must. I could not figure out the threading from the very poor manuals included with the machine. That said, the machine itself is wonderful. I have had Janome sergers before (634D and 9102) and neither of them came close in stitch quality, speed and ease of threading to the Juki. I LOVE the snap down looper threading, and the best thing? on the machine brush there is a little eye like the eye of a needle and you actually load a needle in it to manuever it into the needle slot when you add the needle. Amazing, no brainer, simple inclusion that makes a WORLD of difference in changing thread paths, converting from 2 needle to 3 needle operations and removing needles without dropping them.
I have made a set of napkins for a quilted placemat set with rolled hems, a suit, using the 5 thread safety stitch, and ten baby blankets for charity. Awesome awesome machine.
