where the Stitch and Community matter®

Hello Merrow Community,

I recently purchased a Merrow A-3w overlock from eBay. According to the serial (59622) It was manufactured in the mid 30's. I was wondering if anyone knew about this model or how the model numbers are made up. Are all A series machines the same? I'm also looking to know the intended uses like if this was built for light/med material or can it handle heavier stuff like double layers of denim or canvas?

Do owners manuals exist for them if so does anyone know where I can get one?

Thanks for any help,

Phillip

The A series was one of our original platforms. It describes a combination of frame and cam design. All A class machines are very much different... This machine was designed to sew lightweight woven material, likely for general serging. You will be limited by the throw of the loopers for heavyweight goods, but I expect that if you sew slowly, that you'll likely be able to manage a fairly wide range of material. 

For manuals, your best bet is to use the M/MG manuals. We have been very consistent in the backwards compatibility over the years, and you should fine more than enough information to get going.

m-2dnr-1 won't chain off

How do I get my m-2dnr-1 to chain off? When I stitch off the fabric the stitches immediately stop locking and start to unravel for about 1 1/2 inches. Any suggestions are appreciated.See More

Changing the feed cams on a MB-4DFO

I was wondering if anyone here has ever had to change the feed eccentrics on the active seam machine? I am currently running a 6-82-28 with a 6-82-32. When I sew stretch fleece, the seam comes out very wavy and doesn't lay flat. I am thinking I need to run two 6-82-32 to have the feed take up evenly without the stretch. Can anyone offer their opinion on what I am thinking or how difficult it may be to take on the task of changing these eccentrics out myself?Thanks See More

"Sorry to hear that the A-3DW didn't work out, I was hoping I would be able to get mine to do the emblem edge as well.  30 Stitches/inch seems in the ballpark. I have seen people recommend 32-38, but have gathered that its mostly a factor…"
