Editor rating

Juki MO-623 is an entry level overlock machine. It is a 1 needle, 2 or 3 thread overlock machine. It comes with built-in rolled hem, so that you don't have to change the needle plate .You just need to flip a switch. Like all modern overlock machines, this one also comes with color coded thread paths to make threading easy. Thread tension dial is conveniently located and is easy to use. The seam guide on the machine takes guess work out of the equation. You can create perfect seam allowances, thanks to the seam guide.

The heavy duty knife on Juki MO-623 can cut through light and heavy fabrics equally well. The dial for adjusting lower knife cutting width is easy to use and it ensures consistent stitch quality. The work lights illuminate the work space reasonably well. Stitch length can be adjusted using a dial. The machine has a powerful motor capable of delivering 1500 rpm, which keeps it on par with the competition.
