Survey says: Dissatisfaction with their electromagnetic machine purchases. Why? Because many are built by substandard builders who are also substandard artists and in many more cases not artists at all. Yet the bottom line is that an educated artist would HAVE NO PROBLEMS DIAGNOSING, REPAIRING, MODIFYING AND FINE TUNING ANY ELECTRO MAGNETIC MACHINE
NOW FOR THE HAHAHAHAHAHA!!
One of our suppliers has just notified us that his sales of the NEO TAT rotary product yielded 3 returns with burned out Chinese motors, out of a box of 12... and is pretty sure that more will come back. Have you fallen for the mass marketing campaign? will you? We hope not. The rotary is thought to be a user friendly no brainer for the artists who could not be bothered to learn about their electro magnetic machine but now with statistics like 3 out of 10 coming back with more on the way, is this a real option? This, choice in reality was 500 dollar purchase for a little plastic housing with a toy RC car motor in it. Rotary manufacturers are copying each other and making the rotary product cheaper and cheaper, the same way the duplicators of the standard electro magnetic machine have been doing things. What is standard?
The electro magnetic machine... still after 100 years, the most versatile machine around.
IN OUR UNREGULATED INDUSTRY RUN BY SUPPLY AND DEMAND, WE ARTISTS HAVE THE POWER TO CONTROL WHO COMES IN AND WHO DOESN'T SIMPLY BY NOT PURCHASING SUBSTANDARD PRODUCTS. GET IT? COMPANIES WHO DO NOT SELL PRODUCTS, DO NOT STAY IN BUSINESS. IT'S EASY TO COMPLAIN. TAKING ACTION IS ANOTHER THING.
WHAT IS STANDARD IN MACHINE TECHNOLOGY? FOR THESE SUBSTANDARD BUILDERS, IT'S THE FACT THAT THE ARMATURE BAR GOES UP AND DOWN. NEVER MIND IMPORTANT FACTORS LIKE INCREMENTAL SENSITIVITY! CORRECT SPRING GAUGE AND TENSION! CAPACITANCE AND POLARITY & MATERIALS.
GET THIS ONE!! HERE'S A POWER SUPPLY WITH A KNOB MARKED SPEED CONTROL!!! WHAT THE F*CK! ANYONE WHO THINKS THE DIAL ON ANY POWER SUPPLY CONTROLS SPEED (WITH REGARD TO THE ELECTROMAGNETIC TATTOO MACHINE), SHOULD RE CONSIDER HIS POSITION AS 'TATTOO ARTIST'!! SEE WHAT WE MEAN??? BLIND LEADING THE BLIND.
There is a science to this & it's relatively simple. Learn it or don't. Suffer with your dissatisfaction or do something about it.
