Description:
Mainly over edge machines are overlock machines. In this type of sewing machines there are one or two needles and edge-trimming knife is at the front of needle. To make over lock stitch 2-5 threads are used. Usually SPM of over lock machine is 6500. But SPM of 8500 machines are also found. In this machine there also stretching (stretching max 1: 0.6) and gathering (gathering max 1: 4) systems during feeding cloth. Stitch is done up to maximum 4 mm length and stitch length may also be changed by push button. This type of machines can be used for sewing for both woven and knitted cloths.

Conclusion:
This type of machine can not be used for normal purpose. But for making a complete garment their importance can not be denied. Special care and sufficient knowledge is necessary for proper working. Otherwise faulty sewing may be done. I would like to give special thanks to our teacher. I am also grateful to our instructors. I think this will be very helpful in my future life.
