time to build a Karate Shop and transfer the image to the pedal as a black & clear transfer

That would awesome, only if I could figure out a way to do that.

a dude with a tramp stamp ?
kind of like asking Angus Young to go on stage with a Steinberger Spirit !

Yep, not my proudest moment :) IMO tattoos are like marriage you should be allowed to do either until you at least 25.

This thing sounds incredible -- definitely want to build one for myself!

Who/what should I be looking out for if a run of PCBs is ever done? Definitely don't want to miss this.

Hi, I am will be doing a run of these. I am just going to do one more proto before releasing it. This what the pcb will look like, sorry for the crappy photo.

just an FYI, all of my my more recent build reports are done with vinyl. I don't use the actual vinyl for labeling, i use it as making for powder coat, the same can  be done with rattle cans.

Yep, i used a little toaster oven in the beginning, worked great no real reason to upgrade but... I upgraded (if you can call it that) to little larger toaster convection oven for more space and better distribution of heat. My particular ovens (the old one) thermostat was way wonky, dial would read 400 and was actually curing at 350 using my IR gun (btw, if your using a IR gun readings will be way off for reflective surfaces.) My new oven is spot on and i've cured 6 125b's at the same time no issues.

Congrats btw :) I really enjoy powder coating and seeing the different results i get. I'm working on a faux anodized finish, its looking pretty great.

Hmm, well I don't like a lot of loud noise for sure. I even wear ear plugs when using a Dremel. Maybe I can find one on CL.

Thanks for the help!

You can find some great deals on craigs just make sure that you get a single phase (110v) compressor. I think that they go hand in hand but to make sure when your shopping for the oiled air compressor it needs to be "belt driven" for optimum noise performance. This is the compressor i got, it is about the largest tank and cfm i could get with 110v. You find you use the compressor way more than you anticipated once it is set up. I can stand right next to it and have a normal conversation (well just about) while the tank is being filled, with the oil-less i literally ran out of the garage until the dang thing cut off.

anything really. The gun only takes 5-10psi, cfm shouldn't matter with that gun. Almost any compressor will provide that.  One thing that I would consider when purchasing a compressor is oiled vs oil-less. The cheaper ones (oil-less) are loud as HELL! My oiled compressor runs less than 80db. Trade off is they are much more expensive and can take up more space. I started with a oil-less, and will stop powder coating if i have to go back to a oil-less. With all that being said any oil-less will serve your purpose fine if you don't mind the noise. Don't forget to get a moisture filter(s)

Looks great! I had a problem with small lettering on my grapevine build. I though it was from to much heat and shrinkage, maybe is was a adhisive problem.

Thanks guys. It's was all one session 6 hours long. Sleeping hasn't been a issue, this is by far the least problematic tattoo I've gotten. It does have meaning, short version is it represents my mom :)
