This machine is wonderful! It lines with no problem. I’ve used a 14rl with no issues. It shades beautifully, smooth and precise. Packs color with ease. I’ll NEVER pay hundreds of dollars for a tattoo machine again. I love this company and their equipment.

The box it came with is very nice and definitely protects your investment. As soon as I got it in the mail, it was obvious that this tattoo machine is quality made.
The box features exquisite foam protection and the machine comes in a very nice velvety travel case.
The RCA cord that is included with this product, is right beneath the first layer of foam.
Speaking of the RCA cable, it is very flexible and made of quality construction. The ends are very nicely insulated and the plugs are heavy duty and covered nicely.
As far as the machine itself guess, it is a very lightweight item!
You can easily see that the machine was CNC carved and flawless. It features a locking ratchet grip end that did not change needle grip depth while using it!
Using it is very simple, comfortable and fun!
It is very important to use cartridge needles with a safety membrane! This will help liquids stay outside of the motor.
This machine was quiet, easy to disassemble, and the grip when detached, can be autoclavable. Do not autoclave the motor part!
A very exciting part about the motor is that it IS an original FAULHABER German motor which should last a while with proper care. I ran mine just fine with a 15 RM at 7.5 volts max. There is no "give" adjustment as this machine provides a permanent 3.5 millimeter fixed stroke and the needle bar provides a hard hitting hit of which the "give" is provides by the hardness of the needle cartridge membrane.
