Hey Wes, I just got done with my first tattoo with the Tattanator, just some
simple lettering but just as smooth as silk!!! I tuned the machine initially
at 80hz/30% duty cycle, once i had the needle , tube, and rubber bands set up
on it i had to adjust it to 74hz/32% duty cycle for the same consistency. I
actually think that has a little more to do with my stroke length than
anything. I run a long stroke and so my rear spring aims pretty high in its
resting position, and now that ive backed that off (actually i removed it
all together) its swinging a crazy long stroke, but runs like a dream. I'm
gonna get into adjusting the spring tomorrow and i'll shoot another email

Dude i just got my Tattanator today, This thing is sick!!!!!!! Even like
old turd machines that i have in an old box for apprentices run like
Dringenbergs once you switch them around!!! I'm still playing with the
settings as i'm sure i will be for a long time since there are so many
combinations of spring, and coils to try but just right out of the gate this
thing is all that you said it is, oh and p.s. it runs my, Vivace from NeoTat,
my Hyper V2 from stigma, and my Dragonfly from ink machines. The first 2 ran
sweet but the dragonfly needed a little adjusting of the settings and even
then it ran a little funny sounding compared to running it on the Instek
power supply. Thanks a bunch I'll keep you informed of anything I find worth
mentioning. RIGHTEOUS INK TAT2
unbelievable what it can do to make my tattooing easier,
faster and more adjustable, even while I am working. No
stopping to make all the physical adjustments.
