The Janome 1110DX serger has a design that steadies it against operational vibration while at the same time moving the fabric with greater precision. This stability is thanks in part to its dual feed dog system.
This innovative differential feed system, which uses two feed dogs, virtually eliminates puckered edges on woven fabrics and stretched edges on knits. One feed dog moves the exact amount of fabric needed for the stitch length while the other pushes or pulls the fabric according to the ratio on the feed dial. The ratio can be set anywhere from 0.5 to 2.25.
To combat vibration, the 1110DX has a solid metal base plate. The special shock-absorbing feet attached to the bottom of the plate, dampen any residual vibration and give the machine a much smoother feel.
Threading this serger is easy thanks to an improved color-coded thread guide is printed on the machine. Set-up for 2, 3, or 4-thread stitching simple and quick.
Threading the lower looper has also been simplified with easy-to-reach guides. When the thread guide is rotated, the lower lower looper thread guides pop into view.
The 1110DX has all the premium features you would expect to find on a top end serger: Electronic speed control, retractable upper knife, snap-on feet, adjustable cutting width, and a quick conversion from the standard serger stitch to rolled hem without changing the needle plate. Just slide the needle plate to the "R" position and choose "R.H." on the lower setting slider.
The 1110DX makes a great second machine for completing projects with amazing speed and a professional finish. It can provide "hidden" stitches like the rolled hem or be configured with colorful thread for unique decorative effects.
