The Swashdrive Whip is a classic Rotary tattoo machine with the bonus of the adjustable give-clip. The ‘Give-Clip’ allows you to adjust the stroke of the needle very precisely to your speed, the texture of the skin or the nature of your work.
The latest version of the whip has the same unique action as the original machine only more compact and lightweight with a new brushless motor.
Our new combo version enables you to use standard needles or disposable cartridges using our Swashdrive Grip or (Hawk Style Grips)
The new brushless motor powering our latest machines is an EC (Electronic Computation) technology in small powerful DC electric motors.
Startup voltage is 9.0 volts, this is the minimum voltage required to power up the electronic circuit board that controls the motor.
9 volts at start-up will deliver 2000 rpm or 33 CPS
11 volts = 3000 rpm / 50 CPS
13 volts = 6000 rpm / 100 CPS
16 volts = 9000rpm / 150 CPS
Motor is limited to 150 CPS @16 volts which is max power.
