They could easily fix this, if they could measure and control the speed of their machines. As far as getting the magazine, I’m told that this issue is basically all spoken for and has been mailed out to current Eikon customers — contact them for more machien.

Very inexpensive, very low quality. The profile and diameter of the needle will determine whether or not a needle will work well for tattooing.

By making it run at maximum speed, we will learn what the limitations of each part of the machine are. Carbon plated needles are generally nickel or chrome plating over a carbon steel needle — not some kind of carbon plating on a needle. Once we know that, we can figure out how to overcome these limitations, and engineer a better running machine… Anyway, Machinegun Magazine is published by Eikon and in theory has a website at machinegunmagazine.
