    From what little I know, Bernina's are a high quality machine. Is that a 730?
    Yes, I belive it is a 730. Just started using it, but I found that it need a little oil.
    So I'm googling for manuals. In the kit with the mashine I found several different feet, maybe (if I'm lucky) there is one for sewing flat seems! That would make things easier.

    From the pricing I've seen on ebay, I suspect the 730 is a very desirable machine.

    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.

    Yay, another 62C owner!! Welcome to the club.

    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.

    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.

    A serger might see more use if it were not possible to accomplish the serging function with a hot knife, which works very well with nylon fabric.

    I use a serger quite a bit for cold weather hammock socks, and for clothing.
    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
