    Very nice!

    Oil it about every time you use it and it'll last forever.

    My new addition

    So, I was talking to one of the ladies at work, and telling her about my sewing experience and about my 'creating camping gear'.

    She mentioned she had a serger at home, I commented how nice they were to use, from my days when I worked in the costume department when I was a Theater major. So she says "You can have it if you want it."

    So today when I go in, she's got a present for me in her trunk.

    I brought it home today.

    While not a picture of the actual one she gave me, this is the same model:

    They are a bit of a PITA to thread but I do love the work you can do with a serger.

    Bug nets, and tarp skins, are just a breeze using those.

    That alone is probably worth the cost.

    1957-ish Atlas JA-2 zigzag (internal cams and 7 stitches). All metal gearing...it is a rebadged Brother made in Japan. Just got it for Christmas from the wife...bought at local thrift store for $40.

    Included original manual, tools, feet, bobbins. Also in a year-badged cabinet and it has a knee control. I love it.

    Cabinets, what with their expanding work surface are so very useful to have.

    I just pulled mine out of storage after 8 weeks, for some therapeutic sewing. Repairs and reinforcement of leather straps to a fisherman's canvas bag. Machine and bag of the same vintage.
