The loopers, needle head and cutter work pretty effectively and stitches can look quite good on some fabrics - knits and thicker fabrics tend to be a little more consistent and workable, but working on cotton shirt materials, silks and other light weight fabrics is time-consuming, energy and confidence sapping and not to be recommended in my experience. This is a shame as in all the tests I was able eventually to complete with the machine, seams made with bulked polyester or woolly nylon were attractive and professional in appearance. All the problems I had with the machine seem to me to be symptomatic of poor tension controls.
Most complaints about overlockers stem from an inability to diagnose stitch faults and then balance thread and looper tensions. Upper and lower looper tensions need to be in balance and needle threads need to be 'just-so' in order avoid them looping up or being too tight. On this machine, I found a number of problems with tensions: Inconsistent tensions across all four dials - some were tighter than spec and some looser. In addition a couple of the tension dials actually stuck early on and needed to be thoroughly cleaned before proceeding: this helped somewhat, but didnt resolve tension differences - this may in fact be the root of all problems, but who is going to bother investigating this? Tensions also seem to be fairly non-linear, meaning that tiny 'setting differences' at loose tensions have a markedly stronger effect than similar changes at tighter tensions. On shirt cottons and light silks I also found some evidence of seam material being easily crushed out of shape by the looper threads: it became almost impossible to eliminate because looper tensions had to be set so loose that very very tiny adjustments had to be made constantly to eliminate balancing issues (I couldnt get DF and Foot pressure changes to compensate). Not practical at all. Worst of all for me was spending 30 minutes to get a stitch set up, only to come back the next morning and find the settings needed to be adjusted again.
An unhappy experience of what I feel is a cheap and not very cheerful machine. Judging by the number available second hand on auction sites, I don't appear to be alone.
The machine came pre-threaded with white thread which I wasn't interested in using. So, I chose to pull out the threads and it took me about 4 minutes to thread the machine the first time. I'm an engineer so this may not represent others. It is quite difficult and you can't see where you're threading at times, but with a lucky guess or two, it's quite easy.
I have used the machine primarily on knits and lycra thus far. I've sewn some dresses and bathing suits for my daughter and my wife. I had some loose thread issues in the beginning, but after a few youtube videos on how to balance stitches, I managed to balance the stitches perfectly within a few minutes. The real trick with making tension work on this machine is that you should floss the threads through the tension channels.
The feeder is pretty good too. I haven't had any problems at all with the feeder so far and I even sewed and entire dress for my daughter quite quickly without ever sitting down. I just leaned over and fed the fabric in and the machine really did all the rest of the work for me. All you need to do is to keep the fabric inline with the cutter and all works out beautifully.
To be clear, I have absolutely nothing to compare this machine to. I've only used a regular sewing machine before. In reality, I probably will never buy another overlocker as this should last me 3 lifetimes. I would imagine that compared to other machines, it may be on the pricey side for the features it offers. In fact, it appears the Janome which is less expensive gets nothing but great reviews. What I will say is, I found it to be extremely easy to use. I found the stitch quality to be absolutely superb (though analyzing the stitching mechanism, this should be a given on all overlockers). I found the weight and size to be inconvenient for someone who doesn't have dedicated space, but reasonable. It currently lives on my kitchen table and only consumes a small corner of it.
Major disadvantages :
- No little storage bin to keep tweezers (for threading) and a threader in
- The scrap catch requires that the bin dangles off a table. It would have been better on the machine and plastic instead of fabric
- The holders for large spools of thread weren't really big enough to be helpful.
- The presser foot is a nightmare to squeeze fabric under when sewing a cuff. The spring is a bit overzealous. I think I finally figured out how to get fabric beneath it without growing a third arm.
Let me make very clear here. It's a great little machine. It's fast, it's functional and it's not too shabby looking. While I'm sure Robby is using his far more completely than I am, I wouldn't run back to the store and trade it in for something else even though I think I can for a few more days. I'm pretty pleased with it.
As i already own a pfaff sewing machine, this overlocker just completed my sewing room off nicely, it's a very nice and hefty machine, german quality all over, it's practical, it first cam pre-threaded with white cottons, which were used up quite quickly, and re-threading was an absolute ease, following the colour coded guide, took me less than a minute to thread all 4. (can't understand why people find this difficult if they can read and know their colours, which most primary school children can know this !)
sewing material, I have had no trouble with 5 layers of cotton denim, overlocked with ease,
Yes, I agree with other reviews about the waste collector, could have been plastic, but I find the supplied waste catcher adequate and it does the job !
all in all, I can't find any down sides for this machine, it was well worth the price I paid, for PFAFF, it's not your basic singer !!!
When it works it is brilliant, however the threading is SO temperamental. I can lose a couple of hours each time I use it. Not using it everyday, I put it away (safely) and when I get it out the tension is never right and has to be re threaded/checked or needles changed to get it to sew properly.
I have heard before this was a problem, but it is so frustrating. Many times I have just put it away and done the overlocker on my ordinary sewing machine which defeats the object. Would I buy it again.... not this brand. I love the overlocker, just not the threading/tensions of it.
