Question about White Sewing Speedylock 1600 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I need to take apart my serger case to get to the electical input plug. I am pretty sure that something is disconnected, because there is alot of movement at the plug in site. The machine will work sporadically if I jiggle the cord around. My husband is an electrician, but I don't want to just start trying to take it apart without an idea of what is correct. I can't afford to take the machine to a repair shop even if I could find one that is within 100 miles of me.

FYI, a mock or faux coverhem stitch can be done, in conjunction with your sewing machine and the serger. Takes a bit longer than using an expensive coverhem machine but looks almost the same.
1. Make sure your hem is even and serge the edge using a 3-thread overlock stitch.
2. Iron a 1-inch hem. (Fold 1-inch to the back, wrong sides together) -- Measure to keep it even.
3. Using your sewing machine, you can get a double needle that will fit inside the zig zag hole of the needle plate -- if too large it will break -- and then thread both needles using two spools of thread and stitch on the right (top) side over the ridge that you can see that is from the overcast stitch -- it will be thicker to the touch. Slowly stitch all the way around. I start on the side seam and stitch over a couple of stitches to lock it. If you have ironed a neat hem, it will come out very nice.
If you have to use a single needle, then use a quilting guide bar attachment to follow the first row of stitching to get an even second row.
This can be done on sleeves and bottom hem. Stretch the material slightly to help avoid pulled and broken stitching when wearing.
