SOURCE: The shaft piece on my hobbylock 786 serger is loose

The top hex screw I think holds the bushing that allows it to slide freely. Keep that loose. If you open the panel where the lightbulb lives and spin the wheel, you will see a small flathead screw come into sight near the top of the rotation, through a small round window in the case. Tightening this screw a bit should keep the needleshaft moving with the wheel. Unfortunately I am still trying to find out how to position it so that it's properly timed.

My hobbylock 784-786 serger blade won't cut fabric, it just jams up.


The blade is most likely dull or nicked. Usually, one blade can be changed by the user. The other blade needs to be done by a technician because it requires some technical knowledge.

I need a manual for a Pfaff Hobbylock Serger 4762, where can I find one


I can't find a manual for this model, however there is a general hobbylock book http://sewingonline.co.uk/library/know-your-pfaff-hobbylock.html which would certainly be a good start.

You may find best source is to contact Pfaff locally and source it from them direct.

You could also try www.diplodocs.com, I can't see this manual but if you go through similar model numbers manuals you may see one very similar. Overlockers/Sergers are very similar in many ways so once you've mastered one, the next one is pretty straight forward. Four tension knobs, 2 needles and 2 loopers is the norm - to get a three thread stitch you just don't thread one of the needles. Tension adjustments alter the stitch formation, and you should have a stitch length knob on the right side of the machine along with a flywheel and if it has it, differential feed (which controls the feed dogs so you can stretch, or compress the fabric as it goes under the foot).

There are some good general how to use a serger books in the marketplace too which should help. Threading up, many machines have a diagram inside the front flap, colour coded dots on the knobs, eyelets and loopers. And oiling points are often marked on this diagram too. But basically oil the two loopers where they slide/move on another metal part. Some good info here too http://sewing.about.com/od/sergersoverlock/Sergers_Overlock_Sewing_Machines.htm

Hope this assists you a little.

Hobbylock 797 how to thread


The hobbylocks all thread in much the same fashion.  There is a diagram for a four thread hobbylock on this website.  It would be better if you found a Pfaff dealer to show you as it is quite complicated.

 

http://www.pfaffmachines.co.uk/overlock/pfaff-hobbylock-2-overlocker.htm

 

Once you have it threaded, always cut the old threads at the spool and knot new ones on and pull through.  You will have to thread the needles as the knots will not pass through but it does save an awful lot of frustration when needing new colours on the spools.
