    I would imagine its just better quality components etc. If you buy a cheap Ebay set, the machines that you get are very small, and very basic. Most of the time when they get hot etc, they start to get a bit inconsistant and sticky. Quality machines dont have this problem and will run all day with no problems.

    cheap achines

    hi folks, i bought a second hand kit that had the cheap stuff in it and a few additions ie 2 decent machines a decent foot switch, you could definetly feel the difference between the machines but after downloading the machine tuning and building from the course i stripped down a couple of the cheapies and rebuilt them, i now prefer the cheap rebuild to the expensive ones as its smoother and lighter so it doesnt get heavier and clumsy on those big tattoos,

    1 time spent making a machine yup the builder wants payng for his time
    2 materials involved in making the machine damascus and mokume gane etc are so expensive to buy
    3 lifetime warrenties come into play
    4 experiance from someone who knows what they are doing to make the machine run how it needs to
