So I have this serger that someone gave to me but it doesn’t have a manual. It is a Juki Baby Lock (BL3-407) and I have been having one heck of a time trying to find help for it (going on month 4 now.)
I’ve never used a serger before and I figured that this would be the best way to learn before making the financial investment.
Anyway, I sat down with an experienced friend of mine and together we managed to figure out everything we could about my machine (how to thread it, how to adjust the stitch length, tension…) but for the life of us we could not seem to figure out the stitch width adjustment. It’s currently set to the thinnest width and there are some heavy-duty knits that I was hoping to use.
Now, since I have been looking for the past 4 months, yes, I have tried searching for manuals and every site that I came across that boasted having .pdf versions of the manuals DID NOT actually have them (although I did transmit payment to one and have yet to hear back.) I also tried contacting people in forums (on here and other ones) who have posted about this same machine but have not gotten a reply. So now I am posting here in the hopes that someone will read this and know this machine and take pity on me and explain HOW TO ADJUST THE STITCH WIDTH so that I can finally use my machine in full force!
Thank you in advance!!
This is what my machine looks like (found from google images)
