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.

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!

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?

Thanks

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.
