Overlocker Blades

It is so important you have sharp blades, the neatness of the stitch and tension are massively effected by poor blades, if you were to have a pin mark or chip out of your blade it can cause even more problems with timing if fabric can get jammed without cutting effectively. (old school advice always have a backup set of blades to change when needed) in fact almost all machines came with extra blades years ago but to try keep costs down its one of the things that have stopped so you need to plan ahead. Availability of old knifes and blades are very low and delivery can be weeks. don't get caught out.
