I have a Pfaff coverlock 4862 which I have hd for a long tme. I have never become proficient at using it. I have considered trying to sell it to buy a babylock. I sewed on my friends Babylock Enlighten but it felt "tinnier" compared to the Pfaff machine. I have learned to thread the Pfaff but get confused with adjusting the width, length and which stitch to use. Can anyone speak to my dilemma? I have also considered buying the Babylock Coverstitch machine to have a stand alone coverstitch machine so I don't have to change backand forth. Please help

Best thing to do is visit a Babylock dealer and try out their products.
Take the old serger with you as they may take it in on your Trade-up.

Pfaff is a really good serger (had one) but Babylock is the way to go for ease and the various stitches are awesome (I have the Evolve).

I have sewed on the Bernina sergers made by Juki for 30 some years. They are tanks!!! Never a problem. I bought the BabyLock Enlighten recently and know what you mean about lightweight tinny...but I can tell you the machine is wonderful!!! The stitches are lovely and ease of use is great!!! Highly recommend the baby-Lock.
BL cover-stitch is awesome as well. I prefer the separate machines. plus the Enlighten goes around corners better than the Evolve...for what it's worth...
I just noticed this is a double post...this needs to be merged with your other post.
