This is a craft and has to be protected from people who would use it for a quick buck and hurt people and the craft. Also just because you went through an apprenticeship doesn't mean that builders will open up to you. True builders are a whole different club LMAO.

ps. Haven't you changed a set of springs in two years? If not then try it and see what happens.
right on man!!!!!!!

joey desormeaux's book is really good... but like i told another artist that used to work with me "just because its in that book doesnt mean it has to be like that... stop giving me s&!t for my o rings"...

tear your machines apart and figure it out man... pick the brains of fellow artist that you work or talk with.. if worst comes to worst... do what i did... by a frame and get it running.. then move to the next step and so on... its gonna take a lot of time and investing...

i would start with cutting your own springs and once you have mastered that move on to another aspect of your machine and so on and so forth. even cutting your own springs takes some time to get down and it's the most basic diy thing you can do to a machine.

i too lived in jacksonville.fl. atlantic beach to be exact, the city had over 30 tattoo shops while i was there, and over half of them werent that good. i was going to work in one on mayport road, but i got the idea that the owner was some guy who woke up one day and said "hey, i'll open a tattoo shop" i checked his portfolio and to be honest is was sh*t! this was back in 2004,the shop closed down within a couple months.

there really is a whole lot to learn about building machines, but if you dont even know the difference in springs, then i doubt you'll be able to wrap your own coils, or solder the capaciter correctly, people here are correct bro, they not being mean they are just trying to say to get more educated first.

i know people who cast thier own frames, melt down metal and pour into a clay mold, you can try that,take one of your regular frames and set it in the clay, and try to copy it. or mold out a square block,and try to cut to your desired design.

bicknee sales tattoo kits which you have to solder the capaciter yourself,the coils are already wrapped, although they're not really good machines, you'll learn greatly from building one.the only real difference in spring sizes are thickness and tension, the thicker the spring the harder hitting it is, for instance a shader should have a softer stroke, so youd want thinner springs , a liner is harder hitting,so you'd want thicker springs. the sizes you want you'd have to learn through your own experiences. there is very very much to learn, you also should learn the difference between blue steel springs and regular,long stroke and short stroke. sooooooo much to learn my man. its a long road,dont try going down it too soon.
