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 $599. 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.

Good basic overlocker for the priceBy: Julie on 1 January 2020Arrived with all the accessories so no mucking around with having to purchase extra attachments. No instruction manual online, and the model number MK480 isn't listed in Merrylock's website. Needle threader isn't built-in and it was not easy to use. The cutting blade is easy to swivel out of the way (no annoying screws to remove). Some of the instructions are difficult to understand and it has taken a lot of practice to get it threaded correctly. The scrap bin just slips under the machine and needs to be lifted out of the way to open the access door. The on-board tool box is limited to only the tools supplied; there is no extra room for other tools and accessories. No rolls of thread were provided so you cannot use it straight out of the box. Once it is set up, it runs very well and is easy to maintain. If you are new to overlockers, this machine is a good place to start. Price is reasonable as it comes with all accessories. You still need nimble fingers and a good set of tweezers to thread it properly, but it runs very well when the set-up is completed.
