Transfering techniques from neumas to coil machines.

I was wondering what kind of transition it is when accustomed to working with coil machines vs. the neuma? I understand that there are obvious factors such as, how your coil machine is already set up vs. other coil machines on the market. I guess what I am referring to is the feel of the machine over all, or even the duration I am able to work the skin with a neuma, vs a coil machine? (Example: A long stroke with a low setting running at approx. 90-98hz with a duty of 35 - 40% on an Eikon Meter)

If you make the switch it should only take you no more than a week of use before you get use to it and not want to go back..Check out the Neuma website for more info about that.there is a link on my links page.

hi Mike ,just switched to neuma ,been useing coils for the last 14 years,ive noticed how much faster you need move over the skin ,the pace is so much faster and a higher consentration of coverage,also weaker shade mix,s look darker with the neuma ,the problem i seem to have is i feel the need to slow the neuma down but when dropping the pressure theres not enough air to run the machine ,so it seems to have one speed to me and thats real fast ,did you find the same problem at first ,on a good note it seems to have a soft hit on the skin and the skin heals well ,great work keep moving forward mike ,ash uk :)

that really shouldnt be the case,try putting a drop of 3n1 oil in the back end of it and run it for 10 or twenty minutes to work it in..if you did that already take apart the machine(its really easy)and with your finger rub some oil on the inner parts and run it for a bit and that should solve that problem.

First, those numbers don't mean much because spring tension changes over time. Which means the numbers on the front of your power unit will fluctuate. Which means it is not a reliable method. It should be sound, feel, and how it performs. If you are ready to quit worrying about those numbers and start tattooing simply by feel and sound, then I think nuema's are a good switch. I switched and won't go back.

RE: Transfering techniques from neumas to coil machines.

so, does it means that neuma machines is more faster then coil machines?? but for me 8wrap coil is fast enough.. does fast machines push the ink well into the skin?? isit too fast for the ink to go in?? i have alot problems with 8wrap coil machines.. anyone there to help me out.. explan to me how it works to work on a colour job.. i'm now using 8wrap coil machine.. do u guys pefer 8wrap or 10 wraps or the higher wrap better for colours?? and how about black and grey?? i tot neuma was a slower machine.. but i see the older post, it was said to be fast and soft hit.. this way the does the ink punch to the skin well??

RE:Transfering techniques from neumas to coil machines.

Hey to the dush that wrote well #s dont meen anything , u r wrong , u say the tension will change and that changes # 's , ok , well that is when you re tune it back to those #s , just like if that sound changes u retune it , why go by sound ? I can make it sound good when it runs like shit so screw that sound crap , tune to the #'s and then feel and listen and if u must change slight things that it , so keep that bad cave man info of screw the #'s to your self , dont ruin other an keep them in the cave man error with you, no disrespect tho ,
