    Ryan the machine is as you want it to be.Ive bought machines of ebay also good spares for 8and 10 coil wraps,ive even fitted shims on the front coil so it purrrrrs.There is a tune and build your machine in the download section,its not all about twisting your contact srcew;the spares on e-bay are from the uk usa china,there not exspensive,preety cheap,i bought amature bars contact springs coils,then u can build one.Once you have done that you will know your machine,hope this helps mate....By the way some of them on e bay runn preety fast if so turn volts down..

    How fast Is to fast...I think they heat up quite quick but I don´t know anything about tuning?
     
  5. You will find the spot when its smooth and crispy sound and dosent splutter try starting your machine on 7-7.5 volts then slowly turn it down till it stops then run it up till ya find that smooth none splutting sound or machines are different,so its up to you to find that spot listern when ure doing it tunning i mean ha and you sometimes can tell when its running sweet other than this down load the course,and u can thaen download how to build and tune your machine its good real good.............

    why cant you go over 10 volts?
    sharpz and pulse machines are known to run on higher voltage until you change things

    heat up

    High voltage is one of the reasons your machine heats up over working at high voltage could blow your coils then you would need a repair kit . I'm sure all of this information is in the book .I am sure you well know getting help in this field is almost imposible but for places like this , the book will give you the information you need to get stated then this website will try to answer your questions to help you get further along .give the book a whirl.

    If what you are trying to say with that statement is that information IS easy to get hold of about tattooing, then you are obviously one of the people that get removed from friendly forums like this. The tattoo industry is full of jumped up w****rs that think they have the right to tell everyone else what is wrong, but NEVER what is right!

    If you are the big tattooist that knows EVERYTHING right from wrong, then share it!

    I have seen your posts on here in the past, before they were rightfully deleted by the admins here. Basically, you came here, slagged off everything and everyone, then trotted away, then ranted that your previous posts were missing. I'm sure i'm not on my own when i say this, but if you have nothing constructive to give to this place, then go and hide behind your monitor elsewhere.

    Sorry to the mods around here, but i have been waiting for this dick to re-appear....:cussing:

    sorry if my advise is wrong

    Sorry if my advice seems wrong . i am a beginner that has asked alot of questions in the past an what i was told is high voltage can damage your machine . It can burn out your spring heat your coils up to quickly an adventualy fry your machine . Now if you have your machine built for high voltage that is different im sure but as a beginner I have no clue how to do that. it is wise to stay at low voltage until you learn more about machines . I ve read here in the forums you can download a section on how to tune your machine that should help alot for a beginner to start out with . Again i stress the book sounds like its worth its weight in gold to a beginner like ourselfs give it a whirl an see it may be the best investment you could make .

    ACTUALLY IT IS

    then you are obviously one of the people that get removed from friendly forums like this.
    NOT UNTIL NOW MOST PROBABLY.

    NOW THAT COULD BE CLASSED AS SLAGGING OFF
    but as im obviously a more educated person than you who has actually resorted to the "slagging off "
    sort of **** you can only expect from a chav!
