Hi bri,make sure you have the correct tip for the needles you are using.....and make sure you have a rinse cup handy to regularly rinse your machine out...sounds like the ink had started to dry in the tip mate. :icon_cheesygrin:

Could be too much vaseline clogging the tip, easily done if you are generous with the vaseline.
