I feel like one of those cautionary tales about not buying sewing machines on the internet. A few weeks ago I purchased my Juki 735 off eBay from what looked like a reputable seller. I haven't had too much time to play with my new machine, but today I wanted to set up the cover stitch, only to discover that I am missing the extension plate!

Of course I should have done a thorough inventory as soon as I received the machine, but I did set it up and everything appeared to be there. I failed to open up the manual and look at list of accessories. Had I done that I would have realized sooner.

Looking back at the eBay listing I see that while the seller says that the machine comes with everything that a new one has, when she lists the accessories, she lists everything except the cover stitch extension plate. So, technically she never said there was one included, even though the listing says the machine has everything a new one has. It is also not shown in an of the pictures of the machine on the eBay listing.

I sent the seller an email and am hoping that she still has it, or that there is some other misunderstanding. In the meantime I have tried searching for this part online but have not been able to find it.

Does anyone know where I can buy the coverstitch extension plate if it turns out my seller does not have it?

Thanks!

Here's a link to the Juki brick and mortor stores. There aren't a whole lot of them:

Juki dealers

I would check with one if it's local. Otherwise there are some online sellers that could probably order the part for you. I bought a Bernina 2000DCE on EBay years ago and it came without the extension plate. My dealer ordered it for me. I've since sold that serger but if I ever run into that issue again that's what I would do.

I heard back from the seller. She says that it is stored on the serger, and that it would say in the manual where.

However, the manual only lists it as a separate accessory and the instructions for converting to coverstitch say to open the looper cover, remove the knife guard, then attach the extension plate. I had no problem opening the looper cover and removing the knife guard, but I have no extension plate!

Is the cover stitch extension plate for the Juki MO-735 in fact stored in or on the serger?

Thanks for the link. I will try a few more times with the seller and then perhaps just order from a dealer. Thanks.

Nope, it's a separate piece. You remove the one for serging and put the one of for cover. It's whole different piece. If she doesn't know how the cover worked or maybe never used it.

In this picture the one on the right is for serging and the one on the left is for cover.

Serger plates

Hope this helps!

Thank you for the pictures. I definitely have the piece for serging, but still cannot find the cover extension plate. Are those pictures of Juki parts?

When you got your machine, was the serger plate ( or as the instruction manual calls it, the knife guard) installed with the coverstitch plate attached somewhere else on the machine? Or was located separately?

The seller is certain that the cover plate is attached somewhere on the serger itself, but I can't find it.

This is getting frustrating. I have some t-shirts waiting to be altered!

Mines a Bernina but Juki makes Bernina so it's exactly the same. The piece was totally separate - not attached to the machine. There is no place to attach it. I think it's definitely missing and the seller doesn't really know what she's saying.

Subject: Where to buy Juki 735 coverstitch extension plate? NOW attaching plate Date: 11/4/12 3:36 PM

Now that you have your cover stitch extension plate, did you have any trouble attaching it? I am having a heck of a time. It does not snap into place as the instructions say and seems not to line up properly ... yet it looks exactly like the pictures you showed.
