"I did this using
NYC Tattoo Convention.

The machines that I'm using
never before worked
so constantly and
smooth as now. "

with it to learn how it works."

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 after that.

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
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.
