This is a fabulous machine. The instruction are clear and easy to understand. It is easy to thread and use. It is quiet and runs very smoothly. A lovely bonus was the included feet. It gives a far better finish than my other 2 big name overlockers. I highly recommend this overlocker.
I have waited to report on my Brother overlocker (2104D) in order to give it a good work out. It is my first overlocker and I have now made some drawstring bags and a dress.
As the machine came ready threaded it was easy to get started on samples. I used the 4 thread stitch it was set up for on various types of fabric, both with the blade in use and with it retracted. I removed a thread and then used the 3 thread option. Both were very neat and the machine performed perfectly. I had watched the accompanying DVD and looked at the printed manual.
The fact that the trials went well gave me the confidence to rethread the 4th thread and to test on a real project. The bags were very straight forward and the finish very professional. My first item of clothing, a dress, went very well too and I look forward to using it on more projects.
I was worried it might be noisy but I didn't find it so. A great little machine and I don't see any need for upgrading as it does all I need, especially as it came with other specialist feet and a bag to house the machine when not in use This allows you to keep it threaded between use. It is also light enough to lift onto the table and swap with my sewing machine as the project progressed.
A super machine and excellent price from GUR.
I am extremely satisfied with the service I've been provided by GUR.
The Gritziner overlocker I purchased is a fantastic piece of machinery, and GUR offered the most competitive price on the market. As a bonus, I received a complimentary overlocker bag, and they also gave me the option to purchase additional machine feet at a reduced price. The delivery was swift and the packaging was secure.
I wouldn't hesitate to make another purchase from them in the future.
Oh what a machine ! I love it the quality and ease of use plus its so quiet ! the service from this company GUR is also 5* I ordered this on thurs received it fri machine up and running in 30 mins wish id bought it sooner
Lovely machine, easy to thread, delivered on time. Would like the manual to have more detail on what stich to use for what project, but I am a bit of an overlocker novice, and I guess this is for the more experienced sewer, need to play with it.
Really pleased with this overlocker. Very good company to purchase from. Staff extremely helpful and delivery prompt as promised. Many thanks
Never used an Overlocker before but this is really straightforward to use. Came threaded with colour coded spools and was really easy to rethread, following diagrams inside the cover. It feels very solid and breezed through multiple layers of heavier cotton drill to finish seams on some trousers. At full speed it needs a sturdy table or it will rock a lot, but the rubber feet seem to help a lot.
So far really thrilled with this machine. Lots to learn but seems extremely well built as promised. Interest free option also great.
I broke my original one of the above overlocker which I totally gutted. Thankfully I found the website and ordered myself a replacement, it turned up in days, brilliant service, one hic-up was my bulb was broken, I contacted them via email and delivery was only 1 week later, brilliant service from the company. I love my new overlocker.
Arrived quickly. Good service from GUR. Overlocker working well. Easy to use and thread!
Brilliant, having never used an overlocker it was a bit daunting but this came ready to sew with, I'm really enjoying using it.
Ordered online and the machine arrived the next day. Manual and CD instruction video included, but there’s lots of help too online. . Machine pre-threaded, so was able to start practising straightaway.
So far, so very good. Entirely my own fault but I have had a fair amount of threading practice since my overlocker arrived and it really is as easy as it's said to be. And much easier than the Janome I learned on. The manual was fine but I found it very helpful to find it online and then blow up the pictures for the lower looper threading. So far, I've done 3 and 4 thread overlooking - both seams and neatening. Yes, it's a trifle noisy but it does everything that I can imagine wanting to do. Service from Gursewingmachines was excellent
Still new but I’ve unboxed and had a little play. Happy so far
Fantastic love it so easy to use
I've had this machine for over six months now and I'm very pleased with it. It's easy to use and threading isn't difficult, especially with the way the machine opens up. I would recommend using the thread tension settings as a starting point and experimenting with your fabric/thread combination. I usually always find that my looper tension needs to be higher. I haven't made much use of the differential feed yet but am confident enough now to use it to make a t-shirt without sewing first, and the results have been impressive. Highly recommended.
I am a very experienced seamstress and finally made the decision to purchase an overlocker. I bought the Jaguar overlocker because a friend had previously bought one and was extremely pleased. I ordered it one day and it arrived for breakfast the next day so it was super fast. The DVD was useful as a guide to rethreading. The doors on this machine open right out so it isn't at all fiddly to thread up. You can see exactly what you are doing. I had rethreaded and was using it by the afternoon it was delivered. I would consider it an entry level machine and the extra feet that are supplied will be very useful.
The overlocker is brilliant, stitches are very even, threading the overlocker is the best I’ve done very easy, no flimsy sections to worry about, great value for money. The cottons are very good. The bag is great it fits my sewing machine and overlocker.
I baught this machine because my other overlocker had broken and was beyond repair. I have to say, I was a bit weary at first but I needn't have worried. This is a lovely very well built and very quiet machine. I also love the fact that there is storage for needles, converter and cleaning brush to name a few, in the front cover. I can honestly say that up to now I love this machine.
Excellent service. Machine was delivered much earlier than the expected date with no fuss. I’m new to Brother and have only been examining the guidebook and experimenting, but so far I’m delighted with machine and service. Thank you Gur.
My wife is very happy with the Brother 2104D overlocking machine. In our opinion It's easy to use, produces a good quality finish and is adaptable for various tasks with the additional foot attachments and the double needles. Value for money item with a good after sale service from GUR
Speedy delivery. Machine arrived all set up which was great as its a bit fiddly to thread but becomes easy once you get the hang of it. It's compact but sturdy. Bit early to tell but so far seems like a great buy.
I am so pleased with my overlocker, It’s my first and I love it, I haven’t threaded it yet but it looks easy enough and with all the instructions I shouldn’t have much trouble. The cotton they provide is a bonus, it makes it a joy to get cracking straight away. The little tray is a great asset and so is the extended table thingy, on other maKes and models these are extras, I have made a bag and a dolls dress so far😊 the world’s my oyster. It was delivered really quickly too and the driver was very helpful. Overall I would definitely recommend this 😊
Easy to order, delivery was very quick. The overlocker came pre threaded which was very useful. The machine is compact but does the job very well. The accessory pack contained tweezers for threading the machine, spare needles and additional feet to carry out other tasks such as gathering etc plus other tools. The waste try is very handy and keeps the work area tidy. The foot pedal is lighter than I expected it to be but does the job. Overall I'm very pleased with the overlocker.
I am totally new to owning an over locker, and was worried whether I would get on with one but I can honestly say my new Jaguar 488 is my new best sewing friend. It comes already threaded so you can have a play straight from in boxing, but it's so easy to thread I managed to change threads first time. The machine is a pleasure to use, easy to control, stable and does not make a huge amount of noise. I initially was undecided between the 488 and 489, but decided the additions of 2 thread, a waste tray and a thread cutter were not necessary for me. I am delighted with my machine. Was also grateful for the phone advice I received pre purchase. All round would highly recommend this machine and GUR.
I’ve never used an overlocker before and it has transformed my sewing experience! I wasn’t sure what to buy but the guys at GUR were superb and steered me to the best machine for me. It’s so easy to use - threading is a doddle and the machine runs like a dream. I won’t bother shopping around anymore when it comes to sewing equipment and accessories as the service from GUR is fantastic so much so I treated myself to new sewing machine from them too 😊
After researching overlocker I was so confused. I contacted GUR and they were able to offer advice and made recommendations. I placed an order for the Jaguar Novum 488 overlocker. The transaction was easy and straight forward. The order was placed around 2.30pm and by 10.00 am the next day it had been delivered. Now that's service. I haven't used it yet but am looking forward to it. It came pre threaded which is a big help. I would highly recommend GUR.
I bought the Jaguar Novum Supa for my wife who started sewing during the lockdown. As she had never used an overlock machine I was looking for a model that was easy to use. After contacting GUR for some recommendations we chose the 488 model. The overlock arrived the next day to my wife's delight. She has been using it ever since and found it easy to set up and use. It comes already threaded which makes the spool change much easier when following the instruction manual. Great overlocker and excellent customer service from GUR.
I asked questions via the online web chat which helped me make my mind up to purchase this machine, I haven’t used it much but it is easy to thread and it works brilliantly. Very fast delivery as well. I also went on to purchase the extension table for this machine from GUR as well, again - very fast delivery. Keep up the good work GUR.
Ordered on Sunday afternoon, it was here when I got home from work today (Tuesday).
Incredibly easy to set up. I played around with the tensions, stitch width and differential feeds to see how they would affect the stitch.
Really useful having it ready threaded with different colours so I could see the effect of each change I made.
I decided to bite the bullet and try re-threading it with the thread I had ordered from GUR. I could not believe how easy it was to thread. The machine is much quieter than I expected it to be and I love the fact that you can completely open up the front to see where all the threads go.
Thank you GUR for your excellent, efficient service. I can't wait to start sewing in earnest.
I wanted to buy a Brother as I have a Brother embroidery machine and have never had any problems with it and find it very easy to use. I haven't used an overlocker for about 20 years and remember how difficult it was to thread, but technology has moved on and I'm so pleased with this machine. It is extremely easy to operate and threading is a doddle compared to the old machines as long as you take your time and do it methodically. The only down side is that it is noisy. I have put it on a padded mat which does help, but I'll have to try something thicker. Overall a joy to use and I wish I'd bought one earlier.
Purchased this as a second machine, whilst trying to find a repairer for my Janome. What a fantastic machine- basic but does everything beautifully. Easy to thread, it does come with threads already threaded, but wanted to try it myself. This machine does not disappoint and the customer service has been brilliant in answering my queries prior to purchase. Highly recommend and it came with extra sewing feet-which I am looking forward to trying out soon.
I have never used an overlocker before but find the Jaguar 489 very easy to use and thread. The instructions are very easy to follow and the machine is everything I wanted for my first machine.
I really like this machine. This is my first experience with an overlocker so still learning to use it. However it is surprisingly easy to thread. I am doing a short overlocker course to help learn how to make adjustments to the machine. So far I have had really good results with overlocking my sewing projects.
I can’t wait to start using my new Jaguar overlocker , read so much about it , it’s the perfect match for me😊
This machine is easy to thread up. I like both doors opening for ease of threading up. As with most overlockers it takes time to get the right tensions. It is a heavy stable machine and sews very nicely over all fabrics especially knits. I had not heard of this brand and am very impressed with the quality of this machine.
Great product, easy to use, good user manual. Great service from GUR. Ordered and received the next day. Threaded and ready to use. Good machine for a new overlocker like me. Does all that I need it too. Picked up some good tips as well from you tube. Will shop with GUR again. Thank you
Absolutely delighted with the Jaguar overlocker. Rang GUR for advice as was considering two or three models. The advice (on several occasions!!) was so useful and I was advised that this model would suit my needs rather than the more expensive one I was considering. Machine came pre-threaded and although I felt intimidated the machine has proved itself to be a perfect companion to my Janome sewing machine. Excellent machine and excellent service.
Very pleased for my new overlocker. New to overlocker's and pleased with the ease of use. I can recommend to new users for ease of use, threading and does all that a beginner to immediate sewer would need. Price point good and the extra's pressers foots a good deal. Loved the surprise gift of the fab carrying case. Will be great for storage. Service from Our great. Ordered on Wednesday arrived ready to use on Thursday. Shipping included in the pricing which I like. Will visit your web site again. Thanks
I found this machine to be incredibly easy to use, as a first time user of an overlocker. The 180° opening really does help with threading the machine, which again, is very easy following the guides. So far I've only used it in 4 and 2 thread modes, but I'm really, really happy with the professional finish that it provides. GUR were really quick to dispatch the machine, I ordered it on a Sunday evening and the following morning I received confirmation that it has shipped and it was received before 11am on the Tuesday. Such a fantastic service.
I was looking for a new overlocker and needed an easier threading system. This machine is so clear to see how it’s threaded...the machine is sturdy and although I haven’t tried all of the different attachment feet I can’t see it being a problem. Great price too...this is my second new machine from GUR....I would recommend the service and friendly advice and delivery, not to be sneezed at these days!
I've never used an overlocker before but after a lot of deliberation I bought the Jaguar 489... I love it! I've even re-threaded it! I would definitely recommend it!
Fabulous. Works like a dream and so easy to thread
I bought this after looking at reviews of many overlockers, it came out well. I had never used an overlocker but I wanted to neaten fraying edges and was intrigued to what else you can do ... My first morning opening the box, the machine is pre threaded, I started to work my way through the different types of use... then got stuck with replacing a needle... the lovely man on GUR Helpdesk couldn’t have been kinder or more patient. Thank you +++++. It threads easy and the needle issue was me 🤣 .. I love it.
Very pleased with this one..cannot praise GUR highly enough for their customer service, will definitely recommend them
Great machine, just what I wanted, very easy to use which was very important. Works well with excellent finish to the fabric. GUR were very helpful and the service was first class. Machine arrived the next day. Will definately use them again.
Really pleased with my overlocker. It is easy to thread, very responsive to the pedal and quiet. The customer service team at GUR are superb
I am 80 and this machine was purchased for me by my husband as my fingers not as supple as they used to be. I am loving this new machine. The very fact that it opens up at the front to facilitate ease of threading the dreaded lower looper. The machine is well made, as yet I have not used all the attachments, but have no reason to think these will notgo well I t is an excellent machine all round with good value for money. I have no hesitation in recommending it.
Good value and a very well made and engineered machine. Very easy to thread. Stitches very good
