You will love it without going broke

  • Summary: I had one of these already and liked it. I bought it for a backup to use for parts. Well, I actually found out what was wrong (bent needle bar)fixed it and now I have a perfectly running machine. Not cheap, I actually did not realize that I should not have paid what I did because of the condition and I was really fortunate to able to analyze what was the problem, Jammed solid was the description and I thought that it was probably thread but for another $25 I got a...

I would not recommend this machine refurbished.

  • Summary: I have owned two other sergers for many years. Bought refurbished with full warranty. Was hurrying to make something before a trip to see my daughter. It went through 14 needles, kept hitting the pressure foot and kicking it out of alignment. Contacted seller via text message to ask to return it when I got home. Apparently texts do not go through and by the time i got home it was past the time limit for returns and he would not honor it.

Good value

  • Summary: I love this little machine! Before I got it, for weeks I looked at others. Everyone keeps talking about what a pain it is to thread a serger. HUH? I found this video by a woman on You Tube who had nothing to do with Brother. She was fabulous in her clear directions. I thread it with no problems at all. Good instructions will trump the video that comes it anytime. Frankly I do not know why Brother or Ebay does not hire Kayartist to promote sales.

great basic machine

  • Summary: It is a basic overlock that is very easy to use. Tension adjustment is easy & threading is simple to do even from scratch. It's slightly noisier than my previous electronic machine but the price was good for my limited budget. Next I want to get the cover stitch machine to go with this one to give me more functions.

  • Summary: I bought this serger because I have always wanted one since I sawed on one when I worked in a garment factory. It is so easy to make new clothes or mend seams. My daughter also loves this machine. Now my grand daughter wants to learn to sew!! Great news.

Easy to use & a great buy.

  • Summary: I bought this because Brother serger because it has proven to me it's a good product. I love the color coded dials which make threading easier. The instructions that came with it are great & easy to understand. I love the free arm on this one. I definitely would buy this serger again. The only thing I would like to see different is the thread pole needs to be more solid. For the price you can't beat it. I highly recommend this product.

Why spend more money when you don't have to do so?

  • Summary: Bought this at a great price..Registered it with Brother right away. The machine made a noise when I tried to use it. I took it into the local dealer and they said it hadn't been properly oiled at the factory. Now it works like a dream. This is my first serger, and I was intimidated by reviews of other sergers stating the difficulty in threading. Not with this one. With the two instructional dvd's and the manual, you can't go wrong. I found threading the machine a snap.

Sews great BUT Prepare for Threading Problems & Poor Operating Information.

  • Summary: I've been sewing for over 40 years and have never owned a serger. I finally broke down and purchased the Brother 1034D. CONS: The biggest problem I have found with the 1034D is the threading of it. The bottom access door is positioned at a 45 degree angle which makes it hard to thread the bottom. (I scratched my arm to pieces and drew blood, on the edge of the door). It has a pair of tweezers to use for the threading... For me the tweezers were worthless.

  • Summary: I lost my job a year ago. I wanted to broarden my hobby of designing outterwear/accessories out of recycled materials into a possible real job. Big problem was I could not afford a serger that was important to each project. I found this wonderful serger from Ken's on Ebay. It was exactly like the borrowed one I have used of a friends in the past. And IT WAS AFFORDABLE! Yeah!!! I got it really fast, in perfect shape.
