They are just cheap machines that have had a respray and a new contact screw. Have a look around Ebay, and you will see the machines in black for around *£15.

I bought one about 12 months ago, and all the paint stuck on my fingers. First time you wipe with detergent its finished!

A machine is as good as its setup/springs, etc. :rolleyes:

I looked at those hoodlum machines and was thinking about one myself so thanks for the warning. Regarding mickey sharps machines the dodgy lookin website in one of my previous posts sells exact replicas with boxes and certificates for around $50!

machines

I have been using both shader and liner for several weeks which I bought from Supertatz, they are both really good and I would recommend them especially as they are so cheap. I have bought far worse machines for double the price of these.:thumbsup:

hoodlum machines

Steve baggrz builds the hoodlum machines, and he has been building them for years.
I've been using hoodlum walker liner and iron brass shader machines for ages and
they are just as smooth and solid as my sharpz t-dial and contraption machines,
and cost half the price. :thumbsup:

I think were in danger here of damning someone on one bad review kinda thing? I have heard good things about these machines lately and his feedback is all good (apart from one which is the same complaint as on here) I don't think they are the same cheap china ones with a spray job and new spring? Anyone actually got one apart from the one unhappy dude?

i decided to get the hoodlum blue liner which arrived today and ive got to say build quality is superb and it runs and sounds much much better than my other machines which cost about the same from killerink so if your looking for a decent budget machine so far i cant fault it only *£45 with p&p took a week as he had none ready
