Spring tension

Recommended Posts

I have a question about spring tensions . when I have the proper spring tensions I always seem to notice my coils heat up a bit . and I would think this would indicate my coils are overworking . 18g springs front and rear on all my machines . so my question is should I decrease my spring tension by 50 grams change spring size I'm not sure on what to do, since I have always heard 18g springs are universal these are the fine tuning problems I would like to learn and master . I rebuild all of my machines with hand wrapped coils may this be my issue maybe bad layers ? I thought they came out nice and uniform . I know theres lots of variables with coil machines . I personally know a few people who tattoo but I'm digging deeper into this craft and my machine knowledge has surpassed anyone I know personally .  Thanks in advance
