Why choose the Singer 14HD854 from us?

The new HAEVY DUTY overlock machine by singer compliments the already well established Singer Heavy Duty Range perfectly. It is a great addition to Singer and at a great price.
The body of the machine is a solid cast metal body so it is super sturdy and even the feet that the machine is set on are large scution cups so the machine does not bounce around the table when in use, which is suprising given the overly large and powerful motor this machine has fitted to allow it to zip throught the heavier projects while still sounding quiet. The HD overloer also has extra large blades which allows thicker and heavier materials be managed easily be the 14HD854, the blades are easliy removable and adjustable to allow more or less fabric in the overlocked edge.
Eventhough the machine is heavy duty many of the spares it uses are standard such as the needles, There is no need to fork our extra cash for expensive heavy duty or industial needles as the machine takes a standar domestic overlock needle standard #2022. Threading is very straight forward, nothing elaborate again the same as a standard overlock machine with visible coloured threading guides. The machine is even delivered threaded up with different coloured threads to show you more clearly the threading routes. Maximum 4 thread overlock with safety stitch, also does 3 thread and fine 2 thread overlock from flatlock to rolled hem. The stitch finger is easilt disengaged for a beautiful rolled hem on finer materials by simply sliding a button.
Adjustable feed length dial is positioned on the right hand side of the machine and is very smooth and easy to operate, below that you will find the hand wheel and also a lever which controls the differential feed used to over feed stretch material to reduce or eliminated puckering. The machine also comes with a trim trap so less mess to clean up off the floor when you're done. The bed of the machine is a standard size for domestic overloers however most of the machine bed is removable revealing a fantasically useful free arm perfect for cuffs and trouser legs. As a bonus the working erea is also very well lit by energy efficient LED

Excellent customer services, second to none. Will buy again with total confidence.
Excellent product, no problems so far.
This is a very well made machine & is heavy duty. I can recommend it.
Great singer quality. After taking time to go through handbook and practice the threading and use of the various controls everything was straightforward and will be a great workhorse for my sewing needs. Bought to make some upholstery cushion covers on an armchair.
Very quick delivery, despite the horrendous weather conditions (the beast from the east has struck). This is my first overlocker and I was able to use straight out of the box as it is already threaded up. I have knitting machines and I wanted to be able to “cut and sew” garments together and this machine is going to be excellent for this task judging by the practise runs I have tried. All in all I am very pleased with my purchase, also the price is very reasonable.
After 18 years with a Janome overlocker, I decided to try a Heavy Duty Singer. I have only tried four thread overlocking so far, but the quality seems very good. Carry handle on the machine itself very useful. LED light OK, but no brighter than my old Janome bulb. Very prompt delivery.
This has been bought as a birthday present and has therefore yet to be used and tested, but it arrived as promised and the box looks in good condition and isn't damaged. I haven't opened it, just wrapped it up.
This was chosen by my son who makes hand made designer clothes and I trust his judgment that this is the correct machine for all he needs to do.
So thank you for the prompt delivery, a well packaged item and what should be a great performing machine.
Fast delivery, great product and great company. Highly recomrnded
Very good overlocker, really sews all fabrics, from very light to heavy (double layer heavy wool - no problem). Every material works with every stitch type, but make sure you use a suitable needle! 11 for light fabrics, 14 for medium and 16 for heavy. This is one of the very few overlockers that works with size 16 needle.
Only one point of caution to note: mine arrived drained of its oil, with a puddle gathered under the side cover. Clearly, it had been stored or transported on its side! But I oiled it again, and it is all good now. This requires removing plastic covers to expose the mechanism inside.
Great machine and fast delivery service too
