Workhorse Irons Dot Box
The much anticipated Workhorse Dot Box is now available!!
This has been a fun side project we have been working on to help turn any coil machine into a dot machine for making Dotwork Tattoos using controlled intermittent power bursts. The Dot Box is simple and easy to use! It works in-line and plugs directly into your power supply in the clip cord hole and has a range of speed controlled by simply turning the delay knob.
Yes, there are many ways to do dots and if you have a strategy that works well for you already, more power to you! Our Dot Box is just a different approach, and if nothing else, a fun tool to play with, enjoy!
For Best Performance:
The Dot Box works best with medium or slow, hard hitting liners....or any shader
Quick and zippy light hitting machines are not as effective
Best dots are made using Tight Rounds....Loose Rounds seem to blow out a little bit
Some machines need to be turned up a Volt or two for better results
Not recommended for use with Rotary machines...use with Rotary machines can damage the motor
Timing of the tattoo machine when in use with the Dot Box will create various rhythms and patterns, adjust voltage and Dot Box Delay for varying performance and effect
Match hand speed to the intermittent power bursts to ensure clean dot patterns....if the Dot Box is at a slow setting you will need to move slower, fast setting move faster (duh).
