Janomelock JL-303

Overlocker, Serger

This is not my machine, I saw it advertised, but it was too far away for me to have a look at it.

It appears in some ways older than the other Janomelocks in my collection. It looks more like a Baby lock or Pinnock.

January 2024 and I have been contacted by Bec in the comments section below, she has been kind enough to have scanned the manual and emailed it to me. I have uploaded it to my google drive with the permission of Bec and it can be found here.

Bec was also kind enough to send me the receipt that came with her machine. I will upload this image below, purchase date 1986.

  1. Hi there
    I have this exact machine
    I was wondering if you had any more information about it
    It’s a great machine, I would love to know more

    1. Hi Nikia,
      I am afraid I don’t have any more information on this machine, as I do not own it, nor have I seen one in real life.
      If you own this machine, you probably know more than me.
      Do you own the instruction manual?

  2. I have one of these machines. I do have the manual somewhere and need it to find needle type for it. I believe the pinnock 1p is the manual for it also. They look identical. great little machine..I have had mine for years.

  3. Wow, I just bought this exact machine! The actual one in the photos! It’s in fantastic shape.
    I just scanned the manual and emailed it to you. Let me know if you want more info about it!
