Hildbrandt .444 Marlin Shader

The .444 Marlin is one of the more popular machines from Hildbrandt Tattoo Supply.  It comes standard with our 2008 and later kits.  It was featured in a Czechoslovakian tattoo magazine in February of 2008.  Factory setup The twin frame of the .444 Marlin is the .38 Calibre. Factory setup as a 10 wrap slower shader, better suited for accuracy. 10 wrap coils, 33mm height, 22uf capacitor, 50WV.  Weight is 230 grams/8 ounces.

Hildbrandt .30 Carbine Liner

The Hildbrandt .30 Carbine tattoo machine is an excellent liner. The .30 Carbine is built with a compact frame design that allows for a rapid punch that is ideal for lining and color packing. This frame design started its first production in late 2006 and was a spin off from the already successful .44 Magnum and .357 Magnum models. The compact 8 wrap coils and short springs allow this machine to run at turbo speeds. If you are looking for something slower for lining, consider the .44 Magnum or .22 Rimfire. The weight of this machine is 230 grams/8 ounces. The material of the frame is low carbon steel that is coated with a dark metallic chrome finish. Size is 3.5 x 3.5”. 8 wrap coils, 32.5mm height, 22uf capacitor, 63WV.

Hildbrandt Spartan Power Supply with an output of 1.5V-18V, 2 AMP.  This rugged and reliable power supply design has been a mainstay of Hildbrandt since 2006.  It features a 10 turn dial adjustment knob that allows for incrementally precise voltage adjustments.
