Terry "Tramp" Welker and LA based artist Norm of Love Letters Tattoo collaborated to create these custom hand-built machines. Norm took the original design of the Welker Charger and incorporated the geometry of his favorite machines to create a custom traditional build. You'll love the feel and quality of this west coast inspired Welker machine.
The Welker Charger is a durable, quality liner. It is
designed to run all needle groupings by adjusting the volts delivered to the
machine. The 3-piece frame is hand-made, steel cut, brazed and finished in
the USA. A support bar installed within the frame provides a solid, balanced
feel when tattooing. The rear binding post is position to the side for a more
comfortable clip cord placement. Designed with a rear-pinch tube
vice, the Welker Charger will accommodate all sizes of disposable and metal
tubes. These machines are compact but powerful allowing the artist to work
in hard to reach spots with ease.
Front and rear binding post and contact screws are solid
brass. The brass contact screw provide excellent conductivity. The Charger is
built with 18 gauge, hand-cut, one piece springs. The armature bar is made
of one piece steel. Coils are 8 wrap, shorty, 1 inch coils for a fast,
consistent and solid line you can rely upon. Short coils run large needle
grouping by simply increasing voltage. All coils are wrapped in black
protective tape. Coil cores are made of iron. Vice grip tightens with the
custom Welker thumb turn screw.
Machines are 100% hand made in the USA.
