Needle runners

I purchased a few bags of these needle runners from my tattoo suppliers on my last order I tried them on all my machines and tried them out on myself thank god I didn't use them on a client they are no good make the machines splutter and will have you tattooing like a scratcher save your money and time

These needle runners work fine, however, you do not need to put a bend on your needles when you use them, if you do, that defeat the purpose of the their function. its ok to put a small bend in the top by the solder to insure the needles touch the base of the tube, but they work just fine, the odd tube you may find they have a bit more slack on them, but the elastics or needle tensioner will compensate for any of that...

RE:Needle runners

just to clarify, needle runners are obviously designed to run your needles without the use of elastics or needle tensioners. however if you have a bit of slack depending on the quality and precision of the tubes you purchase, it is ok, to put an elastic on the upper top part of the needle bar to compensate, or to gently touch the tensioner to the bar... but overall, I used these a while back and liked them..... I still use them occasionally when I am doing fine single needle work,,,,
