Does the huskylock 530 do a cover stitch


If it is a serger and does not have the coverstitch conversion option, then no, it does not do coverstitch. (FWIW, the pictures seem to show a machine that was made several years ago before the combination machines were available.) Some machines are combination serger and coverstitch, but most users complain about the difficulty of converting back and forth between the two options. However, good used coverstitch-only machines can be purchased for a relatively good price compared to purchasing a combination unit.

Need help sewing a coverstitch method on knit


Rather depends on the capability and stitch options of your unspecified machine.
Coverstitch is a specialised machine in its own right, you may have an overcast stitch option, NOT cover stitch.

Can you do a coverstitch on the Brother 634D serger


I don't think so, the D in your model name would denote that it has Differential feeding but is probably a 3/4 Marrowing stitch only. So this means it would do 3 thread overlock, 4 thread overlock and you can probably set it up for rolled hemming too.

Coverstitch is fairly new to home sergers and is available on some machines along with the 3 and 4 thread stitches, but changing between the regular overlock and a coverstitch takes a few minutes. The model number will usually have a "C" in the name. Also, during coverstitch the blades are disenaged and don't trim your fabric so you still need often to go back with blunt scissors and trim the raw edge.

And sewing coverstitch can be finicky, with skipped stitches a problem. Use high quality thread and XL (extra long) or SUX (stretch extra long) needles to avoid this.

However some manufacturers are now making dedicated coverstitch machines; if you are assembling a garment with your regular serger, you can then just move over to the coverstitch machine to sew the hems and necklines and not spend 20 mins changing over your machine's functions. Much more productive.

You may wish to check out the Brother 2340CV, this is their dedicated domestic coverstitch machine. Link to product info is http://www.brother-usa.com/homesewing/ModelDetail.aspx?ProductID=2340CV

In the meantime, best solution is a twin needle to stitch the hem from the right side of the garment on your regular sewing machine, looks much the same, and you can get twin needles with a 4mm or 2.2 mm gap and in stretch and sharp tips for less than $10 each. Just iron up the hem about 1.5cm deep, and thread up your sewing machine with the twin needle and two spools of same colour on top (I just wind an extra bobbin and use this plus the original thread spool rather than buy two spools).

Just sew really slow as the twin needle builds up a lot of heat and will break if you push it along. I use this finish on all my knit garments and it works just fine. Sometimes I'll iron in a 2cm strip of fusible web inside the hem to give it some firmness in a neckline, then twin needle stitch at about 1.7 from the folded edge.

Hope this answers your question.

MyLock 134D coverstitch?


While the ML134D is a very good entry level overlocker/serger, for coverstitch you will need a different or dedicated machine.
Janome has recently introduced a new model that is a combined Professional Coverstitch/Overlocker it is model 1200 D (Link) and is truly amazing in the diversity of stitch options
Their other coverstitch only machines are the CoverPro 900 & 1000 www.bargainbox.com.au

Coverstitching on White Speedylock serger


Your machine cannot do a cover stitch. Check the Brother website, they make a cover stitch only machine, it works much better than any of the serger/cover stitch combination machines, and it is a lot less money.
