WHY I STARTED TO BUILT THESE MACHINES?
I'm tattooing since 1995 and owned many machines since then. But even after I knew how they should work it was kind of a pain in the ass to make them do so (and to repeat a tuning on the same frame).
So, in 2005, I started to build my own machines, after I had seen what I liked and disliked from other builders. My main attention was to satisfy my own needs for my daily work.
Most important to me was :
a good tuneability
a capacitor quick change system
a frame material that sucks up vibration
a tube vise that closes tight and opens easily and smooth
an overall look that satisfied my asthetics
