    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.

    First project? 1. Clean it. 2. Order Book for it. 3. Buy supplies 4. Learn to Serge. 5. Find a project to try. BTW- I just looked online and the used ones sell for around $400! I did better than I thought! :lol:
