Does anyone have or used to have a Viking Huskylock 560ED serger?  There's
a used one I'm going to look at, and all I know about it so far is that
it has differential feed and it is a 4-thread, and can use a pearl foot.
I'm trying to find out when these were made,
does it use regular machine needles and could I use an embroidery needle
        for decorative thread?
how easy is it to change to rolled hemming?
how easy is it to adjust the differential feed?
will it do any 2-thread serging?
I'm coming from having a Singer NO-VA  ( this model DOESN'T GO  =(  )

Anyone who could spare the time to share a little, I would appreciate it.

Can't remember if that was the one I bought in 1988 or a few years later.
My first 2 sergers now live with my daughters. The machine I purchased first
required special needles and was more difficult to thread than the second.
Rolled hem required changing the foot and the plate on both machines.
Differential feed was easy to set and neither machine sewed with only 2
threads unless you purchased another accessory.
