1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sergers Babylock 097 or Singer Ultralock 14 U 34 on: July 05, 2012 08:58:42 PM
We managed to get them both threaded and did a trial strip of cloth in both.  Figured out the right stitch spacing and they seem to be ok.

Now I guess I need to decide on which one to keep and hope I make the right decision.

Still wishing for a manual so I'd know what the machine is capable of...

I have 2 Serger's in my possession, and am wondering if 1 may be better than the other and I can pass the other one along.

Babylock 097 has no manual, looks good, we're still trying to figure out how to thread it properly and set the tensions.

Singer Ultralock 14 U 34 has a manual that was dropped in water, so I can't read some of it.  It is also missing the front free arm cylinder cover.  The lady who passed it to me said she had been using it. 

Any opinions on what may be the better machine?  My hubby thinks the Babylock looks to be made a little sturdier but I have having great difficulty getting a manual.
Thanks for your opinions!

Babylock 097 Model, FionasMom.... I tried to send you a personal message.
I have a Babylock 097 with no manual and an old Singer 4 thread Ultralock U 34 Serger whose manual got dropped in water Sad  Not a good situation for me.
Anyone have opinions on which of these machines is a better one?
