Sergers

MorningGlory71 | Posted in General Discussion on

I am new member. I have an old Bernina Bernette serger which I purchased new years and years ago. It has been a great machine. Never had to have it serviced. I made many ice skating outfits for my granddaughter.

I was given a Singer Merritt Lock serger (14u344b). It has no manual and no tools. Does anyone have access to a manual and tell me if I need a special attachment to do a rolled hem. Any tips welcomed.

I love serging polar fleece items.

    http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html this site says it has the manual for your serger, if you check the dropdown menu.

    Hope that helps..

        you're very welcome. Glad to help. I had one of those sergers years ago and I think it had a little needle in the plate that slid back and forth for rolled hems, but my memory is kind of faulty at times.. sort of like swiss cheese <g>

          Do you recall if you needed to change the foot in order to serge a rolled edge? Or just changed the plate.Thanks,

            I honestly don't remember.. wish I did. Just did a search and this is what the rolled hem plate looks like.. http://www.singermachines.co.uk/partsDB/index.php?function=detail&recordID=57

            I'm thinking you'd just change the plate and use three threads, and it should do the rolled hem for you without a different foot, but my memory is totally shot. All I am picturing is my current serger which is a Juki and pretty different from the Singer.

            I have a Singer 14U286B "Quantum Lock" , it uses the same rolled hem plate pictured in a previous post.  I do not change the foot to do a rolled hem.  I prefer the look of a two thread rolled hem, and often use woolly-lock for the looper thread with regular thread in the needle.

            Hope this helps,

            Ok, then all I need to buy is the rolled hem plate which is missing. I would rather not buy the manual since I do not think my granddaughter (age 15) will read it!!! I plan on giving her the serger. I need to find someone who can scan a few pages for me.Thanks,

            You know your granddaughter, so maybe she would not read it; but I have known some 15 yr old kids who would! I was one of them!  Please re-consider buying the manual for it.
