Elna super 62c, just got it on Friday , made a pack cover to work out the kinks and to learn it. Made a 11 foot by 60 in dl with pad slot over the weekend. Works good and it was only 50 with a cleaning at the shop.
Very nice! I like the price as well.
Yay, another 62C owner!! Welcome to the club.
It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

Yea if I could just get the little ducky cog to work, I could have ducks all around. What I really like about the 62c is fast/slow switch on the peddle , the slow just right to keep me consistent on lining up my hems ect. Now I can't go to fast an goof up because of that.
Does anyone use a serger?
I've never found a use for a serger to make hammocks, tarps, etc.
Of course, I know very little about the one I was given and don't really know what all they are capable of. All you really need is a straight stitch.

Neither of which were nylon.
It works very well to stabilize the edges, and then fold and sew stronger seams if necessary.
Stuff sacks are a breeze with a serger, finished edges inside and no unravel.
If I cut more than one layer of nylon at a time I do not use a hot knife, so a serger helps hold the edges well
