  2. Hi Illyanna,

    Thankyou. I recently had a go on a friends 334D and it's fabulous!!! After looking it up on the internet...I found that it reviewed really well. This overlocker has been described as a workhorse!

    Seems like $400 is the going rate for one in good condition.

  3. Hey Colette,
    Thanks so much for answering my comment!
    That's awesome news, I was a little afraid I paid too much and the machine was too old, but the reviews I read it was the best to get.. but they were just general from teh internet and while I think it is awesome to use, this is the first overlocker I have had, so there was nothing to compare it to.
    Anyway.. so I don't babble. Thanks so much! You have made my day. I feel so much better about the price I paid now :))
    Many, much good luck with finding one!! :))

  5. i have one and i don't like it at all but maybe i need to get it serviced- there's something not right about it, the tension is all wrong. i didn't realise it was considered to be so good so maybe i'll hang on to it- sorry!

  7. Very good overlocker. Always good to clean the tension units out and make sure your needle plates's needle is still in. It helps to spread your stitch evenly and makes it flow off the plate. Check that your loopers don't have a fine hook on the point of it. Your cotton can hook on it and cause skipped stithces.
    Most parts are still available and you can replace the motor with a generic one.
    A good technician can help you with all these little problems.

  8. Out of curiosity :) Did you ever find one? Now I'm being nosy, how much did you get it for?
    I've been looking for one, but the last one I saw on eBay had a buy it now price of $680 O_o I don't know how good it is, but I felt the price was a bit too high for such an old machine.
    Have a wonderful afternoon!

  9. Hi Liana2,

    As a matter of fact not long after I posted this, a lady from Melbourne contacted me about selling her Bernette 334. I bought it off her for $450 and it's in mint condition. I'm very happy with it.

  10. It's 3 years later and I am wondering if you would still recommend purchasing a used Bernette 334D. There is one available on an auction but it is not returnable and I cannot test it. No guarantees are made regarding it's working ability except that it turns on. I will not purchase a really cheap serger nor a really expensive serger (high quality) so a good used one is what I want to try. I have never used a serger, although I have 6 sewing machines and understand them well. Would love to learn to sew with knits and I think a good serger is going to be important for that. How much is does a good used serger cost these days? I know you can't be exact but any information and opinions are very appreciated. Thanks. By the way, I am in Tennessee, USA.
