Default Kenmore Overlocker

Picked up today for 30 bucks at the local thrift store:

That's a pic I grabbed off the internet. Same model though. Kenmore 385.16622. Looks to be virtually unused. No lint inside, just a bit of regular old dust. Cosmetically no marks at all. Missing needles, but that's no big.

Haven't had a good look through it yet, I saw 30 bucks and just hightailed it out of the store. But the initial looks indicates is complete and good to go.

Nice little score to go with my singer 22u 3 thread Serger. I had been working on converting it to a 4 thread, but seems there's no need for that now....

Might be playing a little fast and loose with the term "vintage" with this one though.....

It's an oldie but a goodie. Just have to really make sure the thread is "flossed" up into the tension disks on this one.

Doesn't look like it has a built-in roll hem, so do you have the roll-hem plate? Does it have differential feed?

Have fun playing with your machine!
