A: Regular sewing machine oil.
A: Typical home sewing machine oil you can get anywhere. The directions tell you where to put it. Very easy on this machine takes a minute or so. I keep a can of Canned Air handy to blow out the inside frequently it helps a lot since sergers can produce a lot of fuzz and fibers down in the machine. I have 4 of these and use them every day I love them. Bought a more expensive brand and came back to this one.
A: Triflow Oil: https: //www.triflowlubricants.com/product/tri-flow-superior-lubricant-drip-bottle-2/ Refer to the owners for the oiling locations.
A: No, it's an addition to a regular sewing machine but doesn't take the place of one.
A: Although some projects can be done 100 percent on a serger, a serger cannot replace a regular sewing machine. You will still need a regular machine for facings, darts, zippers, topstitching, buttonholes, etc. It depends on what projects you want to work on. Serger is great if you only make quilts but for making clothing, etc. you would need a regular machine.
A: A serger is used to overcast rough edges of a project - preventing fraying, as well as, attaching ribbing to t-shirts and pj's - NOT interchangeable with a regular sewing machine - having both is very, very helpful making each project look good! This serger is very good - and you can use 3 or 4 threads!
A: I have only used this machine to serge fabric edges so far. It has additional functions that I haven't explored yet.
A: Yes, however, I own a regular sewing machine as well as an overlock and use them both a little differently. I love the overlock for regular seams because it overlocks the stitching and trims at the same time.
A: Have only used it for heming like what is on your jeans but have heard you can use it for quilting
A: Yes, it can be used for regular everyday sewing as well as the more detailed projects.
A: No, I don't think so. This machine finishes off the seam allowance on clothing (using 3 or 4 thread overlock stitch). But it can also be used for a blind hem, rolled hem and flat lock. You can use universal (and all) sewing machine needles in it and a variety of decorative thread.
A: Please reach out to Brother at 877-276-8437 or www.brother-usa.com for specific answers. Did ;you reach the complete owners guide for the machine on the site?
A: You can use it to sew without the cutting edge by disengaging the cutting blade - if that is what you mean by a cover stitch. I LOVE my serger.
A: No it does not.
A: Not sure what you mean by coverstitch. Please call Brother at 877-276-8437.
A: Stitch options for the Brother Model 1034D include 4 thread overlock, 3 thread overlock, narrow hem, rolled hem, and ribbon lock stitches. The Model CV3550 is designed for cover stitching. The manuals for both machines are available online to evaluate if the Model 1034D will suffice for your home sewing project or if you want to invest the extra money for the more expensive CV3550. Hope this helps. Good luck!
A: Yes, I believe so.
