About the tattoo machine debugging and methods, I always want to own understanding of the machine and the experience to share with you, but always felt that he is still in groping. After nearly period of time have a good heart of the deep understanding of the machine, and write down to discuss with you, but this is just my feeling now, I writing just want to give you for reference and reference. I hope my these words can help you.

A tattoo machine to get the hand, can let us to adjust only the following links: Front spring,rear spring,distance between spring, contact screw, damping ring, the position of the coil, a rubber band, armature. And coil, iron core, frame, capacitance basically we can't move. All adjustments around two factors - frequency and power, I will be one of the below rule one join us.
Front spring : length width thickness soft hard and bending Angle will affect the frequency and power of the machine. Long, narrow, thin, soft, low bend Angle will slow down, let the machine frequency power. Conversely frequency faster, smaller power.

Damping ring: thick hard and soft, thin, soft to slow frequency, power. And vice versa. Damping ring is actually an extension of the former shrapnel, good shrapnel can even don't damping ring before, as before the power to the maximum value of shrapnel, the biggest strength.

Contact screw: the location of the contact point is near the tip of the former shrapnel, the slower the frequency, the greater the power, and vice versa. Contact the more tightly on the screw strength is smaller, the faster the frequency. Advice contact screw, as far as possible light touch shrapnel, at most backspin again one to two laps, shrapnel can play the biggest power.

rear spring: size and bending Angle will affect the hard and soft machine frequency, power, and the length of the needle. Narrow, thin, soft will slow down, let the machine frequency power. Conversely frequency faster, smaller power. Bending Angle of the needle, the longer the greater the power machine, the greater the frequency of the slower, and vice versa.

After spacing: refers to the machine in the back seat and the distance of the armature, this distance is to change the length of the shrapnel, actually can be done in several ways, adjust the length of the armature, the size of the shell plate, after promptly moved forward, and it can change after spacing. After a distance, the greater the power, the greater the frequency, the more slowly, and vice versa.

Coil position: the front circle the top (near the needle that coil) the greater the power, the greater the distance between the coil before and after the greater the power. Suggested coil after front circle as far as possible, don't move.
armature bar: material, weight, length of armature the heavier the longer the armature, the greater the power, the slower frequency. Material aspects, temporarily I only know that the better magnetic armature, the better.
Rubber band: use less as far as possible, as long as can control needle of beating, the right way can reduce the loading needle, so you just need one or two root rubber bands. Under the condition of general color, totem need machine strength, frequency, black and white traditional and drawing need machine power is small, fast frequency. You suitable machine can be adjusted according to the above rules. Above for shallow analysis, laughed.
If you ask, what kind of frequency and power to adjust to the best? Ha ha, each person is different, see his like, all roads lead to Rome.
