literally owned all these about 8 days or so, so i dont know the machines that well at all as i've gone from proper ebay garbage that ran like forest gump in braces to machines that buzz nice and smoothly :p

the micky sharpz machines run really hard and fast and need about 10volts to get going, i've read a fair few comments about changing the spring tensions to make them run nice at about 6-7 volts but apparantly this is normal for these machines so i will get some new springs and see what happens when i get round to it.

the other 2 i got 2nd hand off ebay, both are made by glyn flew and they sound so nice when they run, run about 6.5 for the liner and about 6 maybe less for the shader (off the top of my head) shader sounds really nice and smooth at a low speed (95 CPS) think my micky sharpz shader is more like 120cps maybe a bit more, tried tuning it similar to the other shader and it just runs totally different, tho i got 4 machines to have them setup differently anyway :cool:

do you guys use 2 machines, 1 for liner 1 for shader or are you using multiple ones?

thats me done now tho i had a money pot set specifically for splashing out on better equipment so im glad i took the plunge and got what i wanted.
just hope more people reply with what machines they use so others can take on board what people recommend and what kinda stuff to watch out for

Hi All

I have recenly bought a shader and liner from Glyn Flew, his machines are very good and much cheaper than the more famous brands. He has machines for sale on Ebay occasionally, but usually they are gone very quickly. I emailed him through ebay and ordered them and he built them and sent them out within a week. I have also recently bought some machines from Supertatz who was selling them on this site. Even the 2 for *£20 are ok. And the *£20 each models are better than most machines which cost *£80 each. Keep an eye open for these as you really don;t have to spend a fortune to get a good machine.

Personally, i already have 2 machines from Glyn Flew ordered, liner and shader, will probably only get them on the start of next month, so can't really say much yet, but i have only heard great stuff about his machines so far.
