i think the hardest thing about the serger is threading it but usually there color coated. i think the speed is the most important factor, because zig zag i bet could get an tighter lock. i have a fast servo sew machine at home but can only do stright stitch if i could find an sewing machine that could do zig zag near the speed as a serger then i wouldnt use the serger again. of course if i have puckering problems then i might try to trouble shoot it with te serger so i suppose never say never.
making stuff fast i stright stitch then serger it and i'm out.
i also have two cheap 100$us ish sewing machine
