    I have found some nice things at garage sales in my time, but this is my ultimate find! Would you believe $25 ? And it works perfect! It needs cleaning, so guess how I will be spending my week?

    A Janome 134D with differential feed!

    Love the machine. Good score from a yard sale. I guess I need to start going back to garage/yard sales to see what I can find. Before I never could find any good stuff like machines and fabric.

    I have the exact Serger, love it. Ex-husband bought it for me about 13yrs ago. I have not even had to change the blades. Only thing don't like is threading the green dial. After I have threaded the tension, I take that thread and small needle to push it through the the bar under the needle plate, otherwise I would be all day trying to get the thread through with my fingers. I tried cleaning it once by spraying it with a can of air. It froze up and would not budge. I sprayed it with WD-40 and it has worked like better than before, that was years ago. Not sure if I should have used WD40 but that was the only thing came to mind at that time. I have never had to have mine serviced. I hope you enjoy it, if you have any questions, pm me and I'll answer what I can. Oh, I think my ex paid about $200 for it at out local Singer dealer. The were the only ones selling Janome at that time.

    I have had that same serger for about 15 years,( it sure cost a lot more than $25.00). I would not trade it today for any of the new ones. Congratulations you will love it.
