Introducing the Merrylock MK480 – A genuine innovation in the home overlocker market

Made in Taiwan by one of the world's leading manufacturers of overlockers and coverstitch machines, the Merrylock MK480 is the first overlocker to feature an LED illuminated looper threading area. Combined with their award winning looper threading system and automatic tension release facility, the MK480 takes the frustration out of threading.

The sleek lines, soothing matte finish and precision build quality are complemented by the smooth and quiet operation which belies the very affordable price of only $799. The super slim free-arm design accommodates the smallest of sleeves and cuffs and easy access to the differential feed, stitch length and width adjustments make the MK480 a pleasure to use.

The front cover incorporates a well-planned on-board accessory storage compartment and also activates a safety shut off if left open. The handy fabric waste bin also clips perfectly into place to keep your work area tidy. The top-drive cutting blade system helps prevent accidental fabric jams and offers simple disengagement as does the one-touch chaining finger for quickly converting to and from rolled hemming.

With 2, 3 or 4 thread configuration and offering a total of 17 different stitch applications, the Merrylock MK480 is arguably the best overlocker available in the mid-price range.

The All New MerryLock MK480 has been a huge success throughout Europe and now is exclusively available in Australia direct from Echidna Sewing.

Perfect stitching ... when I get it right

By: Mandy on 20 June 2023
I'm still learning this machine. Sometimes I get a big ball of thread at the start of the seam before it kicks in and feeds the fabric. The foot lever works in the opposite to every machine I've ever had and doesn't rise very high so I have had some issues with the foot still being up and the stitching a shambles. Because the foot rises so minimally, it looks like it's engaged when you put fabric under it. I have learned that if the fabric doesn't feed normally, that I've done it again! So easy to thread. Love the light down under. Absolutely love the free arm ... one of the main reasons for buying this machine. I was so sick to death of pricking myself with pins when doing sleeve cuffs .... no more injuries :) Beautiful stitching when I do get it right :) I bought the extension table and feet. Extension table is fantastic for taking the weight off (less stretching) when sewing heavier fabrics. Practice will make perfect :)

A dream to use!

I've had my Merrylock for a little while now - thought I should get to know it, and use it before reviewing! It is a wonderful machine, with a great price tag! The reverse presser foot lifter still catches me out at times, but that's no big deal as there are so many other features that I love. Its a breeze to thread with its led lights, lower looper aid and needle threader (watch Gary's video on threading if you don't know what I'm talking about!) The free arm is great and I use it all the time for sleeves, etc. I've owned other 'big name' overlockers and I have found the Merrylock to be the easiest and quickest to get a perfect stitch, whether it is standard 4 thread, 3 thread seam finish or a 2 stitch rolled chiffon hem. Love it!

Excellent service

After putting in a not so good review for this machine, I was contacted by Echidna, Gary was so helpful he helped me iron out a few of my problems, and I am sure as I use the machine more I will undoubtedly get used to it. Thanks again Echidna service is brilliant.
