I have the opportunity to get the MyLock 134d for $45. It has only been used a couple of times so it is virtually new. This is actually a two part question.

1. Is the price right for this model? Not sure how old it is
2. I have "never" used a serger before...would this be a good learning machine?

Totally new to this forum and would appreciate any help...Thanks in advance!

The price is definitely right but I don't know this serger. If you can take some of the kinds of fabric you sew and try it out before you purchase.

I think it would be an OK serger to learn on. Read through the manual so that you understand the threading and tensions are of the machine. Janome makes good machines so you shouldn't have any trouble there.

I bought mine 15 years ago for 415 Aus: dollars. It is a great lttle machine and very easy to use but you do need the instruction book. I have used it all this time with no problems. After setting it up to sew try it on a piece of scrap fabric first to check settings.

Hi!
I just got a Janome 134D serger and am having trouble setting the tension.
Could you please LMK what you have yours set on so far as tension, stitch length, and differential?
That would give me something to go on as I am getting lots of loops and my stitch is not looking good.
Many thanks!! Joyce in GA

I have had one for years and have had no problems with it. If you go online you can find a location where you can buy the instruction manual as a pdf file.
