Can anyone recommend a good serger for simple seam allowance finishing?

    I have the Brother 1034D as my "easy serger" for quick, clean seam finishes. It's a very easy machine to thread and use.

    I also have the Brother 1034D and it's easy to thread, works very well and is inexpensive.

    I just purchased a Brother 1034D and it's easy to work with. Found it on Amazon at a lower price point. And so far I jumped in to serger some PJ's for my granddaughter. Very happy with it!

    I am sooo happy I ran across this 'thread' (no pun intended, lol)!! I just bought the Brother 1034D for myself for Christmas!! I got mine at Walmart for under $200.00. I am new to sewing, and now that I am my fiancé, and the rest of my family all love for me to sew them pajamas. I go to Walmart and they have pre-packaged fabrics up tp 4 yards for $4. I've gotten extremely lucky as the fabrics are perfect for that purpose, as well as being a somewhat beginner, I can make mistakes and it only cost me a couple dollars!! Although I have a lovely Brother sewing machine that is an embroidery combo (Brother SE600), I bought the serger for the long seams in the pants of the pajamas-it makes quick work of them! So far I have sewn a lot of stretchy , woven knit materials and then some satin/charmeuse fabrics that tend to fray quite a bit. I'm still in the learning curve; but it has expanded my repertoire considerably.
    Best regards,

    I've had a Brother 1034 D for over 15 years and it's still going strong.

    The Brother 1034D is a good machine;, however, the one I had has just broken down recently after using it for 8 yrs. So, since repairs were to be over $150. I decided to purchase a JUKI MO-654DE..from SewingMachinesPlus.com . Real great customer service. Just got it and in process of figuring how to thread it. Nice looking serger and constructed very well. Good luck with your serging adventure..You should have some fun. There are many You Tube videos out there...Enjoy.

    I have a VERY old Singer Serger that I bought when they first came out with sergers for the home sewer. I think I purchased the machine in the early 90's. I bought a Brother, don't remember the model, from Costco and returned it. I'll stick with my old Singer. However, I may buy that specific Brother model and give it a try to see if I like it better.
    Thanks to all for the input.
