R Dens4d: Would be more instructive if you demonstrated how to thread the chain tension disk. Baby Lock's instructions for this step aren't clear and most of the videos don't begin until after they've brought the chain looper thru the tension. Why is that???
ssarge2: does this work for the Evolve also?
Bagpipe Gnat: how do you thread the chain looper area to the right of the machine?
Jennifer McKenzie: The only thing I needed help with was how to to thread for the coverstitch which was not shown???
Wendi Owens: would have been helpful if you demonstrated how to thread the back of the machine for the needles. It is a special way of threding
Edithsews: Hi there, try a stitch length of 3 and make sure the differential is set to N and most importantly use ELx705needles. The needle tension should be set 3-5. Hope that helps.
TwistedAngleMag: Thanks for a great video. I just found you and have been watching them all. I'm having a lot of trouble with chain and coverstitch though. The chain looper doesn't seem to form stitches on wither stitch and when it does, it makes only the chain with no elasticity. Do you have any ideas how I can fix it?
Amy Wong: Thank you so much. Looking forward to see more of your videos. By the way, you have a very nice voice.
Edithsews: Hi Amy, I will include this in the next Evolution video. Thanks for your input, have a great day!
Amy Wong: Hi Edith, I meant where you place the chain needle 1, 2 and 3 to which thread port from the back and then thread them to the front. I was hoping to see the back of serger on how you bring the threads to the front. Thanks.
Edithsews: Do you mean the wrong side of the fabric or to the front of the foot?
Amy Wong: I wish you would show how you get the cover stitch needle thread from the back to the front.
Edithsews: The accessories are available individually which is great because you can add them as your skills grow!
Rc lee: are all those accessories included in the kit?
Bill Salvey: Cool beans
Edithsews: Baby Lock Sergers are manufactured in Japan
Bill Salvey: one last question...what country are babylock made in?
Edithsews: The loopers would have no problem with the weight of the thread, what you would want to test is how wirey the thread is, if it has too much body the needles won't be able to catch and the loops won't form nicely around the cut edge of the fabric. Test by serging slowly with strong thread in the needles and the nylon thread in the loopers. Ramp up your speed by increments as long as your stitches are forming consistently. Best regards.
Bill Salvey: I want one, but what i want to know (other then the price) can you use heavy threads such as 69wt. Bonded nylon? Is the machine strong enough to use it and if it jams while using it at high speed, will it break the machine in terms of bending and/or snapping any of the loopers?
Chef de NYC: Thanks! I'm more info ultrasound type of work. I learn most of the stuff myself online. Just only recently start looking for a school to make things "official". Hehe
