i only have £100 so new is out of the question. does argos or similar ever reduce them to half price, apart from ebay is there anywhere else i could look for a second hand one.

many thanks

try to find a sewing machine repair shop near you (your nearest fabric shop can help) and ask if they have any second hand ones - they are good as new as they get serviced, repaired and made good!

for much less than new!

I saw some in Dunelm Mill a couple of weeks ago and pretty sure they were £60-80 ish. Only because I remember thinking that was quite cheap.

I know people who have bought them from Tesco using the voucher exchange programme, that might be worth a look?

Try gumtree. I got mine from there for £60 and its brill!

ill have a look at gumtree and the tesco idea is a great one. how hard are they to thread. they look complicated.

I've seen overlockers on sale in Lidl recently. About £100 I think.
