    Threading a Brother serger 1034D video

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YriGYOxocV4

    She gives a good demo for this particular serger (which I have). Seems like not all of them are threaded exactly the same way.

    BTW, we have page after page of serger questions and info when I used the search function. I didn't see this particular video but there were so many I could have missed it.

    Thanks for sharing. I didn't watch the whole thing because I'm doing ok now, but if I put it aside for a while I'm sure I'll need a reminder!

    I have a tip: Those plastic dental flossers bought at the drug store work great for threading the loopers. They are flexible and long enough that it's easier to get the lower looper thread over the upper as it's supposed to be.

    Thanks for the tip - but I'm not sure I know which flossers you mean.

    It would help if I called them the right thing. :-)

    I have this serger and love it. The dvd that came with it shows an easier way to do it. It came already threaded out of the box. What it says to do is after you drop this, turn a dial to that etc.. is you leave it threaded with the current thread. Cut it off about 6" from the "t" bar (with the "tail thread" facing you). Tie the new thread onto the one your replacing and pull it through all the twists and turns until you get the the needle. Cut off the old thread and use a needle threader and pull the new thread through the eye. Repeat for the remaining 3 spools. Since most of my sergering is hidden, I keep my machine loaded with two white for the top thread and a grey one and a black for the bottom threads.

    Good hint. I keep mine threaded sort of like that too, but in case I break a thread I thought I'd be prepared.

    I found out it's easy to break the arm connected to the feed-dog lever. On my sewing machine (Janome) I can lift the feed-dogs a little higher if I push it higher again. I tried that with this serger and it broke. I didn't push it very hard.

    It is a metal bar held in a plastic gear. We took it apart to find that out. I tried gluing it with hot glue gun, that worked for a day. We glued it with a type of epoxy last night. It takes 24 hrs. to cure so I don't know how well that will hold but I will probably find an arm to order.

    Just letting you know so you don't try it. I was trying to get more clearance to get a mirror under it while inserting new needles. ooops (This works great on my sewing machine, because then I can see the holes to insert the needle.)

    I'm sorry, I mean the PRESSER foot lever. I found a picture of what I'm talking about, and found it cheaper elsewhere but they didn't have a picture:
