Impressive Japanese overlocker
Due to doing a lot more sewing during 2020, I decided to purchase an overlocker. After doing some research, I discovered the Juki MO1000. It appealed to me because it's supposed to be an 'easy threader' and great for beginner users. It was expensive compared to other more common models available in Australia, but I'm really glad that I bought it. You could just tell that a lot of care and consideration has gone into this machine. It arrived packed meticulously (not just your usual plastic and styrofoam). It smelt like it had been freshly oiled,...and the company had even done a test piece to check that everything was working. I haven't had any issues with it so far. It does thread nicely, although it obviously takes more time than threading a sewing machine. I've tried it on a variety of fabrics (silk, tencel, tulle, cotton, denim) and everthing has been top notch.
Purchased in February 2021 for $1,455.00.
You soon forget about the expense when using this Overlocker
We bought this over locker after weeks of research and talking to dealers
My wife started off looking at them at Spotlight but soon realise they don’t have any backup and the machines they sell are on the lower scale of cheap mass produced machines.
So we bit the bullet and worked out $600 just wasn’t going to pay for a decent machine and so there was only really two alternatives and lock or Juki overlocker
Baby lock Is just far too expensive and all reviews pointed To Juki being the easiest and smoothest to use and value for money
Purchased in March 2019 at Echinda Sewing Brisbane for $1,500.00.
I did a lot of research and this was the best for me
This overlocker is great. Easy to thread, both loopers are air threaded through the mechanism. Both needles have a needle threader. Very good value for money. Works perfectly. Easy to adjust for different sewing requirements. I used to spend hours adjusting my old machine, now it takes no time at all. If it isn't working, I know I did something wrong and quickly and easily just rethread and then it just works.
