With the unique jet-air threading system.

The Baby Lock Enspire may be small but it is strong and easy to operate.

It's predecessor, the Baby Lock Eclipse, was the world's first domestic overlock machine. In 1996, this overlocker won the Japanese innovation award for its outstanding, revolutionary technology.

Since then, no other machine has been honoured with this award. This pioneering spirit is also evident in the Enspire, offering a variety of new features. This overlocker comes with the unique Baby Lock jet-air threading system for super-easy threading. No need to follow any threading points and there are no loose threads that could get tangled up. Just insert the desired looper thread into the respective looper port, push the lever down and a gust of air shoots your thread up to the tip of the looper. This applies to all looper threads.

The handy needle threader does a good job when it comes to threading both needles. Your new Baby Lock offers a whole range of other fantastic adjustment possibilities. You can change the actual stitch width and not just the cutting width, for example, because the chaining finger and the cutter move together in the same direction. This avoids overcutting and undercutting and you don't have to continually readjust the thread tension.

Unique loopers

The Baby Lock Enspire features a unique, compact tubular looper system that guarantees fuss-free, quick threading. Extra-strong loopers in a quality similar to that used in industry make your Baby Lock Enspire fit for more difficult tasks.

The Enspire's auxiliary looper / converter can be easily activated for a two-thread stitch and as it’s attached to the upper looper it is unlikely to be misplaced.

Jet-air
Jet-Air System

The ingenious jet-air threading system makes threading your Enspire child's play. From now on, you are the one who defines the threading order. You no longer need to follow any coloured threading points with a pair of tweezers or start again from the beginning because of a threading error. Forget about loose threads that may cause tangles and confusion. Simply choose the desired looper thread, insert it into the threading port, push the lever and a jet of air pushes the thread up to the tip of the Enspire's looper as if by magic. In fact, all loopers will. The jet-air system of your Baby Lock Enspire is simply ingenious!

Manual thread tension control

Adjusting the thread tension is always a bit fiddly. Especially if the stitches you have just produced do not look the way you want them to. The Baby Lock Enspire has separate looper thread and needle thread tension dials that are clearly arranged to allow an easy adjustment of the tension for the correct thread. Don't be afraid of setting the thread tension to your respective needs. All tension dials have marks to make it easier for you to return to the basic setting.

 

Adjustment possibilities
Adjustment possibilities

The Baby Lock Enspire lets you adjust the stitch width quickly and easily. Since both the cutter and the chaining finger move together, it really is the stitch width that changes and not just the cutting width, as with other conventional machines. This prevents overcutting and undercutting. You can deactivate the cutter quickly and easily with a switch if you want to sew closed or tube-like pieces of clothing. The same switch reactivates the cutter whenever you need it. The cutter is not fully retracted and you can use it as a guide. One dial lets you modify the stitch length and change over the Enspire to the rolled hem option. Simply read the setting value on the dial's scale.

Differential feed
Differential feed

Stretch fabrics often cause problems such as puckering or distorted seams that can be frustrating. Thanks to its differential feed mechanism with a range of 0.2 - 2.0:1, the Enspire guarantees an optimum feed of stretch fabrics and thus prevents puckering or protruding seams. You can also use the Enspire's differential feed to produce deliberate gathering or stretching effects.

  • Tweezers
  • Needles
  • Spare needle screws
  • Spare cutters
  • Screwdriver for needle screws
  • Soft brush with guide to insert the needles
