Elna lock L-1

Overlocker / Serger

circa 1985, 3 thread.

These machines came as 4 thread also, see my page on Elna lock L-4.

An ebay win. I could see it was damaged, but I thought I would put in the opening bid, low and behold, I won. Another one of those moments when I question my sanity.

I found out that in 1985 it cost $499, so really it was a bargain 🙂

I don’t have the manual for this machine.

Work in progress…more to come.
