Singer Professional 5 Serger
 from Anchorage, AK,  Jul 7, 2012

I got the serger home first thing i did is printed out the PDF file instructions put them all in a binder and started testing out the machine. In front of the Machine A thru K took me a minute to figure out that the colored dots are the ones you need to thread an you need the PDF manual that tells you were to set your Seam width, spreader, that’s simple.... flatlock the reason i got this serger that’s more complicated... took me a long time to figure it out wish there was better instructions, its got real pictures but you really cant see what they talking about wish they like circled it or something. Upper looper lower loop??? ( Flatlock Tread the blue top, green bottom, red bottom.) What confused me is for the green it says upper looper engaged and threaded… the upper is what confused me it took me a while but once I figured it out its easy simple… The green can be treaded thru the bottom or the top. Changing from the cutter or straight plate is hard to snap off I feel like im going to break it, hope it smoothes out with time and get easier to take off or im taking it off wrong… it defiantly takes time i went thru all the You tube demos and HSN videos Singer site videos ... but once you get the stitch to work its awesome... i got the rolled hem, and took a hour to figure out the flatlock and then forgot how to do the rolled hem need better notes for self.. but over all once you get passed figuring it out ... you will be happy with it... but if you don’t have time to sit with it, or don’t like to mess with stuff, I wouldn’t recommend it. I have lots of patients and even i got frustrated a few times... its very complicated but once you figure it out its easy…does lots i haven’t even tested the other feet. But with time im sure it will come easy.,,,
