Juki MO 1000 Serger Features

Stitch options:

This machine is outfitted with seven stitch options which include:

  • 2- 3-4-thread overlock stitch

Jet-Air threading:

In this Serger machine, there are two holes to thread the needle easily--a big boon for users. A gust of air pushes the threads of the lower looper instantly. This makes using the upper loopers very easy--all it takes is to use the color-coded guides that feed about nine to 12 inches into the opening accurately, by pressing the “Air” button and letting the automatic needle threader carry out its function. This happens so smoothly that you might well call this model a Juki self threading serger.

Automatic needle threader:

To use this feature, lower the lever for threading, hook the thread and leave the lever so that the action of threading a serger is complete.

Adjustable Differential Feed:

The adjustable differential feed ensures that the user gets perfect stitches, irrespective of whether the fabric used is sheer or thick, or a stretchy knit or snake skin. Lizard skin. Typically, the feed can be adjusted during running the machine. At this time, it will provide a ratio of 0.7 mm to 2 mm.

Easily accessible controls:

The length of the stitch and the controls for differential feed are conveniently situated on the right side of the machine. This gives the user easy access to the control so that necessary changes can be made quickly without stopping work.

The height of the throat is now fixed at 72.4 mm, giving the user more work room.

Easy to use:

This machine is so easy to use that you won't ever need to use the manual or the instructional DVD for threading.

Its long knife blade gives clean and perfect cuts in sheer or thick fabric layers. Here, retracting the knife blade refers to serge without really cutting the material.
