i can say his prices are very reasonable and im in the process of having him build me a one off from my design..easy to work with and he has some interesting coils. If you look at his work youll see its very clean and well crafted, you can tell he takes pride in what he does. I dont have any of his machines yet, but im going to soon. So yea, thats all i can really say, hes been patient with me eventho ive been dragging my heels on finalizing the design, i got a good feeling about him. I would like to hear anyone elses feedback

Totally worth it. Great guy, craftsmanship and service. I have a machine he built for me that I use daily.

hey alan, does your machine have the quad coils ? Im curious about them.

I have one with the Quads.... it heats up. I have my theories but, won't go into it here. If you understand how coils work and think about how they are built, I think you will figure it out. They get hot. The machine and everything else rocks.. quads are getting canned and replaced with either some crowknows or with the NEW next gens.

I have a machine with his quad coils and they don't overheat at all, at least in my case. Some how the quads coils makes it zappy and quick with not so much volts, which I like.

Posted by T on 08/06/10


Ok, yea i had a theory they might heat up, so eventho its 50/50 on that experience im going to trust my gut. And i figured it would make them responsive under low volts, but have less capacity at higher volts, thanks.

SO who cares if the quad coils haves less capacity in higher volts if it does great work in the lower volts, I also have a quad coil machine. As long it does the duty it suppose to its fine and great. Most so called artists make the common mistake swearing on 6 volts or a specific volt thinking that is all about the technical side of tattooing. Just go for the feeling of the machine and stop being old school and step up the game. haha im going to get hammer for this comment.

You assume too much. and contradict yourself. Going by the feel of a machine IS old school if you want to generalize things like that. . To clairify what i ment, usually, machines with less wire operate in a lower more confined range, doesint make them bad, but less versatile and oftentimes make great zippy liners. You can counter act the limited power range, mostly with the springs. Also, machines with more core showing have a tendancy to heat up, but that could likely be from trying to operate the machine above its capacity, but theres other reason for that too.

Ive never met anyone that swore by a particular voltage, thats dumb.. i hope my last post, the one you responded too didint somehow give you somekind of cause to lump me into a group of "so called artist" because thats a tab bit more narrow minded then the idea of 6 volts being the end all best operating voltage. Noone was talkin shit it was just a discussion.

and seriously, MOST so called artists swear by a particular voltage ???? really !? k dude....no more old school for me and ill step up the game, sir, just for you...... But if you could qualify that statement i would love to hear it...maybe you have taken somekind of survey of the worlds most stubborn and static artists and after extensive reasearch managed to find a whole bunch of knuckleheads, none of which ive ever came across, or even assumed would exist..considering its a big contradiction because, ill make the generalization that people who are obsessive about numbers are not "old school" in fact thats a "new school" phenominon... and its very flawed compaired to the "good ol days" of going by feel...maybe you just mispoke, a fraudian slip of sorts ?

Thanks for the responses guys. Whats the deal with those quad coils? Does anyone understand the theory behind them or are they more of a gimmick?

Yeah, no slam intended on Dart... just telling it like it is. I run that thing at around 4 - 4.5 volts. Cool for about 20 mins anything past that and its hot. 6 or above.. forget it... not enough range for me. Ok for 5-7 mags on small tats but, I dont do much of those anymore these days... Swappin the coils... they look cool as hell but, proofs in the puddin. I've ran just about every possible needle configuration under various voltage etc. etc. since Nov. of last year...and I'm over em... The frame and hardware are sweet. For anyone who cares I have the walker machine thats on his myspace. The blued one with holes, abalone wrap and gold trim... it is numbered # 1 of that run. I think I'll be very happy with it with full wraps. =)

I Bought one a couple years ago on ebay, it looked great! but when i recieved it, we discovered that the rear spring saddle was out of level and the coils had a bit of magnetizem to them among other problems.Upon the passing of some time and alot of tinkering on the machine between me and my mentor, to try and correct it problems Lo and Behold the rear spring saddle fell right off! just a weak excuse for a weld. Needless to say i hadnt sent it back(probobly could have) but it made me definatly leary of the rest of his machines... so i give him a thumbs down!

Hello to all, first off let me start off with introducing myself. My name is Dart Vaughan, of Surreal Customs. I would like to give thanks to those who have taken my back on my products, as we are a small business, and take pride in what we do. We work very hard to put out the best product in our industry, at an affordable price. I see there are a few people who disagree with our product. If there are any issues with any of our products, machines or coils, we offer a lifetime warranty on our machines, and we will work with the purchaser one on one to address any issues, and make it right. I build a lot of handmade machines with nothing more than a drill press, and a dremmel. I put a lot of time, and attention into everything I do, and I do little outsourcing, which is so commonly known in this industry. I would like to take a moment to discuss quad coil technology. In the beginning, it started with nothing but a dream, and an idea. This lead me into a 6 month study, as I am very familiar with the works of Nikola Tesla, and the coil properties (continuities, and conductivity). Like any new technology, there are always bugs that are in the beginning of development. Those of you who have the claim of heat, we will replace the coils absolutely free, as they were some of the beginning design sets made. To this day we sell hundreds a week, all around the world. However, don't take my word for it, ask the people who own the products. Here is a little bit of insight behind the quad coil, and how it works. First, you must take into account the cores I use. I have a custom formulated low carbon, high iron core, made exclusively by my good friend Paul Fleury, aka Crowknows, that the public cannot access. That first and foremost puts my core specs above industry standard. This is the best way to explain the quad coil process:

This design features a much lighter weight, two times charging and two times the speed. The sleek design shows the open core centres and travel wires hop coil to coil, allowing for a second charge base.

This is a complex design at the finest function, with the lesser of wire and distance from one to the other coil, allows for a faster and smoother travel time.

Polyphase power distribution system = A polyphase system is a means of distributing alternating current electrical power. Polyphase systems have three or more energized electrical conductors carrying alternating currents with a definite time offset between the voltage waves in each conductor, with phase spacing to reduce harmonic generation in the DC supply system and to provide smoother direct current.

Try to think of it like a power nozzle on a garden hose. You still have the same amount of water and pressure within the hose, however, with the garden nozzle applied to the hose, you're pressure changes in its release. You have a faster pace water spray, as well as a nice continuous stream within that spray, and it takes less water to achieve that hard spray.

If you have any more questions, please feel free to contact us at:
surreal_customs@hotmail.com
I hope this has explained some of your questions, and can help you out.

Thanks,
Dart
