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 Road Runner 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 Road Runner is a durable, quality shader for black and gray or color. 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 positioned to the side for a more
comfortable clip cord placement. Designed with a rear-pinch tube
vice, the Welker Road Runner will accommodate all sizes of disposable and metal
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 with recessed holes. Machine comes with 8 wrap 1 1/2 inch coils for a smooth hitting shader. 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.
