Hi all! I'm a new member and am interested in some info. Does anyone own or know about the Babylock DBL 34-36 or Huskylock 1002 LCD? Both are used and offered for sale but, alas, I am a beginner and don't know a lot about either machine. Thanks in advance for your help!

Sorry Crystal, can't answer your question-I don't have either, but I wanted to welcome you. I'm sure someone will be along with an answer soon-these folks are very knowledgable and always willing to help out! Hope you enjoy the board. :smile:

I cannot tell you about those models, but I can tell you of Babylock's general reliability... I have a serger (plain old 3/4 thread serger w/rolled hem capability) that was made by Babylock. I bought it at Cloth World about 1990.. I know its 15 years old, been cleaned and serviced at home by me ever since.. Never broken a needle, never any problems with it.. The name on is says "Companion 2040".. I cannot tell you how many thousands of hours I have logged on this jewel..Still going strong.. I paid $279.00 for it brand new back then.. It uses regular needles, is a b**** to thread, so I try to do that the cheater way. (tying on new threads and serging it through the process, unless it is one of the needle threads) .. I call that reliable, Less than $100.00 for each 5 years of service.. that is why I love Babylock... :bg: :bg:

I don't have a huskylock yet but have been researching them because I have the husqvarna #1 plus sewing machine and I have been so happy with it. The 936 is the newest one out and I have looked at it on ebay. I can usually find them for under a thousand dollars. I don't know what you're looking to do with the serger but I would say that a huskylock is a great product. Let me know if you buy it and how you like it. That model is usually a good buy on ebay.
