The Advantage of the 12-E
The 12-E is an extra-high lift, single needle, single row sewing machine that joins tough material. It sews a 5/8" butted-seam at 1600 rpm.
WHY it's better
The 12-E produces the wide, flat butted seam favored when joining material. It sews a 5/8" butted-seam that is nearly as flat as the material itself, ensuring that subsequent processing equipment will not be affected as with other bulkier stitches.
HOW it's better
The 12-E is constructed of robust parts and is built to Merrow's rigid quality standards. The long arm design and high looper/needle throw provide the clearance required when seaming rigid materials, while the 6" hand wheel and plain feed 1/4" looper gauge provide the torque and strength necessary to penetrate thick material.
WHERE it's used
The 12-E is used in typical textile joining applications and will join everything from carpet to leather. It is adept at seaming tough composites like kevlar, heavy duty carbon fiber, and fiberglass, and is the machine of choice for joining turf and other geotextiles.

Merrow Portable Machine Advantages
Since 1838 Merrow has manufactured the world's best overlock sewing machines. A Merrow Machine is built to sew a more precise stitch and operate longer than any other competitive sewing machine in its class.
Merrow Machines are engineered and manufactured more carefully, designed to last decades, and supported with a network of 156 agents in 65 countries. The Merrow Sewing Machine is The Most PRECISE and TOUGHEST sewing machine manufactured in the world
Overlock stitching was invented by the Merrow Machine Company in 1881. Merrow's original three-thread overedge sewing machine is the forerunner of contemporary overlocking machines. Over time, the Merrow Machine Company pioneered the design of new machines to create a variety of overlock stitches, such as two, and four-thread sergers, the one-thread butted seam, and the cutterless emblem edger. Today Two- and three-thread formations are also known as "merrowing".
Since 2006 Merrow Machines are engineered and built in Fall River, MA.
