How do you translate this word in Spanish? This is a addition to a sewing machine that does the stiching that you find inside your clothes on the seams to prevent them from unraveling.
Máquina overlock, at least in Mexico.
ok. Thanks again! This board is GREAT!!!!
Who are you quoting James'
I'm quoting the link I gave you.
Who are you quoting James? I think maquina terminadora is correct, the other word means mender, at least according to my dictionary but it's old!
Thanks guys! I appreciate your help!
Check out this other forum:
En la frase que mencionas serge se refiere a una puntada de costura que se hace con una máquina que se llama Serger que hace los terminados de las orillas.
En México le llaman máquina overlock o más correctamente máquina terminadora.
See these regarding overlock stiching (sergers). Looks like James is correct.
I think this might be referred to as an "overlocker" in England which does a zig zag pattern. No idea what it is in Spanish though.
James, I don't think that's right, remalladora is a mending machine and this machine does a stitch similar to zig zag to preven the seams from fraying. Do you know what I'm talking about?
The correct spelling is serger, which comes from the noun serge. A surger would be something that surges.
I think the Spanish for this machine is remalladora. Check it out.
