I love my Huskylock 905!!!

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:snap-on feet, easy rolled hem, easy to thread, easy to clean

Cons:a pain to change to two-thread sewing

Once I decided I wanted a serger, there was no stopping me. I researched everything I could get my hands on and visited dealers representing every brand of serger that there is!

I was attracted to the design of the 900 series Huskylocks, because I prefer the large, open design that is very similar to a regular sewing machine. When I test drove sergers, I felt like I was at a disadvantage if the serger did not have a space for my right hand if I needed it to help guide the fabric. Other deciding factors for me were the free-arm, the ease of changing to rolled hem, the ability to do two-thread sewing and the fact that the machine comes with a video and the sale price of $549 from $699.

I really had hoped to buy a machine with coverstitch, but the 936 (along with every other coverstitch serger on the market) was just too pricey at the time. I also decided to get the 905 rather than 910 because I felt I could do without the bells and whistles of the 910--the two are the same machine but the 910 has preprogrammed settings.

The 905's manual has several charts that helped me learn how to choose the correct tension, stitch length and width and differential feed setting for whatever I need to do. The video was very helpful as well. I had never used a serger before, but immediately was able to thread it (handy diagram on the inside of the front cover) and practice all the different stithes.

The 905 is very easy to use which I feel is the reason I use the machine all the time, from finishing raw edges of wovens before prewashing, to constucting clothes, gathering, etc. I am surprised that as a novice sewer and serger newbie, I have been able to do so much in such a short period of time.
