While I've never used an Eddy machine, I will say this..

Stand up, and extreme attention put into each piece done..

IF you end up with one of his machines, I'm sure you'll love it!

i wouldn't trust so much a machine where the a-bar does not cover the rear coil top entirely and the coils are shimmed with brass...

1st GREAT advise about grabbing a 'primo membership'!

You'll get thousands of times what the up-front-cost is in advise, help, info, etc..

(I should have mentioned that from the get-go)

2nd I dropped in, and dropped Eddy a note that this thread popped up..

Hopefully, he'll be 'in' to explain the different set-ups first hand.

Since I'm by NO means a builder of 'coil-based' machines,

I'll completely stay out of the do's / don'ts, or pros / cons (mentioned above)

That is best left up to the people that build this type of setup.

Hopefully, you'll get some more info soon..

:)

Well let's talk about that Green Koffin Machine 1st That's the one off of NeedleJig.com, I made that machine For a customer, and He Did not Pay up so I sent it to my Dist., I have made this customer machines in the past and that's how he likes it set up, The Brass washers are Steel washers that are spray painted Brass to match the real brass washers on the Machine Binders,but they are steel washers like the ones in the photo attached here. Fabio has a point here Builders need to use Steel Washers to help retain the magnetic Field with the Coils and Frame if it's Steel, now if's it's Brass or a non conductive magnetic Metal such as Brass and Stainless a Yoke is a Must to Keep the Magnetic Field Between the Coils, and 2nd I agree with Fabio on the Arm Bar, is far forward but The gentlemen I made that machine for likes them that way, and there are a few artists out there who like their Machines Built the way they like it. I should have reset that arm bar back before I sent it to Marc at Needlejig, but hey Some artist might like it that way. if you take a look at my facebook, and see my other Machines that I built and the artist's who use them and like them. But Hey I try my best when it comes to my products, but I can't Please Everyone, and everyone has their Opinion's on how a machine is built .

Well Everyone thanks for listening

absolutely did in my mind.im sure how u could see the confusion could have occured as we all assumed were talking about a top name,and then a reference that looks "off" just sparked a bit of convo,as there are many builders here.and as we all know,whatever works,but certain things like non ferous metals without a yoke are a no no,and things like rear gap placement obviously are subjective to personaal taste.deff cleared up to me.

25 pds.jees.all one size?i wouldnt even know where to go for 25 pounds,and i have a feeling it would last me my lifetime.probably smart tho as shims are ridiculously over priced. thanks for the chime in and clearing everything up,and for the info as well

Hey G, it's asst. shim thickness's My fam. have a hardware, and I got all my hardware in in bulk that pic. is one size the box has four diffrent sizes in it, if you ever need hardware at a good price, let me know, I sell to other builders. and I like this site, I have been checking it out for a few hours now. I and think it would be great to talk to others about machines and ideas. I am glad I'm here now, thanks for contacting me about it

thats awsome eddy.thats quite the assortment.good position to be in.id love to hit u up next time i need something. ill hit u in same pm,as that way ur box wont get as cluttered,cause i promise it will with only 50 pm load,but theres a button top left to save to ur email before erasin when u do need new space.will deff hit u up.hopefully will be mutually beneficial,and aint nothing better then keeping money in the tattoo community.especially people doing things directly for other people as oppossed to suppliers.not that those arent great too.one of my best friends does that,and believe me hes there to help builders as well too.even tho we all gotta eat.that parts understood by all thoughtful respectful artists,and most are happy to abide.other then that tiny percent that charge u 30 bucks for shipping for ordering an a bar for example.that we could do without.that is why i always say try and make ur orders worth it.but not always possible.we will deff speak more on the subject.and appreciate the heads up/offer very much. will stay in touch for sure

bless

hey Eddy, welcome to the forum.

ok i understand about the steel shims just painted (take notice some paint will also interfere). but about the a-bar, i really cannot understand why anybody could prefer having it like that, because it's useless, and most important, you are loosing power there. i don't think it's a good idea to make things wrong just because a customer wants it like that.

please don't take this as a personal attack to you, i'm just argumenting my previous comments about that machine.

No Worries Fabio,

it's cool, and I know what you mean about that, and hey I didn't want to do that, but if the customer wanted it that way. anyways, It's no Personal attack Bud, I respect you and understand where your coming from. It's funny that this happened and your Fabio came up, Bob Pflum and I were talking about you the other day
