Tattoo Machine Parts  How to make electromagnetic coils for tattoo machines

     Coils Pre-made
The Poly-thermaleze coating on the wires
insulates the wires one from another.
This coating must be stripped off prior to soldering.
A razor blade or sharp edge knife will easily remove the coating by scraping the coating off.

If the wires are soldered without removing the coating
no electrical current will flow and the coils will not work.
