This is a small batch run of custom, hand built & bespoke Rotary Tattoo Machines; each one individually numbered and produced in a very limited quantity. The entire thing is fabricated by a guy, in his workshop, bar the needle bar bearing and the motor (although that is heavily modified by him).
The tube vice is 18mm diam. solid brass, with a brass split collet braised in to avoid crushed back stems; all painstakingly hand polished. The frame upright is hand cut, shaped, profiled and polished solid brass; drilled to his geometry, all entirely by hand. The drive cam is solid brass, with an eccentric needle bar mount bearing giving a 3mm throw as standard (though I can offer any throw that you would like). The binders are also solid brass, also polished and also hand made.
The motor has hand fabricated fixed contact points, and is finished with a brass sleeve, which is bored and lapped from a solid brass bar to a slip-fit and again is fully polished to give that slick TripleBrass*** finish, before being hand aged and having a patina applied using a blend of compounds and chemicals along with the rest of the polished components. The motor itself runs strong and smooth, with a wide power band and delivers power from around 1volt all the way through to around 15 volts.
This machines will line, will pack colour and will blend out the softest B&G in the right hands.
