I'm looking for a good previously owned serger and wondered if anyone has the protege model. If so, please tell me your likes and dislikes. Thanks!

I have a Babylock Eclipse that I purchased second-hand. It is absolutely fabulous. I love, love, love the jet air threading, what a joy it is to use - I look for excuses to have to rethread the machine! The stitch quality is great, there is nothing that I am unhappy with. I had never used a Babylock machine of any type before, if I ever am looking at a new sewing machine, I would certainly check theirs out. Good luck finding a machine that you like.

Oh, one more thing, if you are looking for a new machine, be sure to check all the dealers in your area - I found the prices differences to be huge. Also, a dealer near me had a special event going on, a Babylock teacher was in for the day showing their best serger. They had that model and the next one down (I think they were the Evolve and Wave), they were great prices, but the extras included at the event were phenomenal. Thankfully I had just purchased my used, or I would have wanted one badly.

I just started to take sewing lessons through a sewing lounge and have fallen in love with the serger. She made us finish seams a variety of ways before she would let us use a serger. I am now haunting craigslst and yard sales for one of my own!

Good to know that you like the babylock eclipse. That is one that I am looking for. Especially for the jet air threading!

My sewing machine that I use the most is a 1947 singer featherweight. I love it! But, I haven't heard many good things about singer brand sergers.

Does anyone have any comments about other serger brands besides babylock??

Baby Lock is the best . . . hands down (when it comes to sergers)! However, Bernina makes a WONDERFUL serger as well! They are both pricey.

The older Singer machines are totally unbeatable! I mean for years I kept buying used Singers at garage sales and auctions (Touch n' Sew models from the 70's) they were work horses and made cool button holes. But now Singer's new machines are lacking in quality (sew I am told).

You might take a look on my item 160322933539 with the serger babylock BL402 Protege. Mostly it was sitting on the shelf and barely used. It is oiled, threaded for your convenience, and ready for hard work in the new home.

I have a Baby Lock Protege Serger Model bl5370. My mother gave it to me for my daughter to use but she's not interested. It was just serviced and I'd like to sell it

I wish I could use my Protege. The manual was lost, and I can't find one anywhere. I have a singer that was given to me, It works well, I really like it, but want to use the Protege.
