Which serger/coverstitch do you use?

Post by quiltingjoy » Wed Nov 28, 2018 8:06 pm

I’m looking to add both an serger and coverstitch machine to my in-home studio. And as for now I have two options: buy two separate machines or try a hybrid one. That's why I'd like to ask: which one is better in your opinion? Which model do you have at home? Home many threads? Personally, I've narrowed down my options to 3 threads after my research and I don't get the idea why would you need more (but if you know the answer, I'm kindly asking you to enlighten me).

For a hybrid my option is Babylock Evolution https://babylock.com/machines/serger/ev ... /evolution, but as I see it could be annoying to switch each time you need a different option. And I think it might be an overkill.
For serger it's the Brother 1034D via https://www.consumersearch.com/sergers' ... om/sergers.
As a separate For a separate coverstitch I'm looking at Juki MCS-1500 https://wisepick.org/best-coverstitch-m ... /#product3. I have a weak spot for that brand since my main quilting workhorse (a.k.a. sewing machine) is Yuki.

Have you tried any of these? What's your feedback? If you have a different device/combination of devices - let me know.
Thanks in advance and enjoy your day, ladies :)

My Pfaff Coverlock is a machine that has a cover stitch as well as serger stitches. I have never used the cover stitch, just as the serger. It came with a attachment to do the coverstitch. I use mine for serging and rolled hemming.

I have used both of them and they are good. The best one is Juki MCS-1500 and https://www.toiletable.com/best-flushin ... ng-toilet/
