      Sidewinder 46er Featherweight Battleship Grey RCA


      Sold Out

      *Sidewinder 46er RCA edition

      *This RCA motor housing was designed around a Critical Universal battery pack, but fits with most battery packs I have tried, such as Musotoku, Ink Claw, and Papa.

      *This will also work fine with a right-angle RCA cord.

      *The position of the battery makes the machine’s balance point much more forward, like a pen.

      On the Critical Shorty battery, you can expect around 3 hours of serious tattooing.

      Featherweight models weigh 4.4 oz., Brass (Standard): 6.04 oz.

      With Critical Shorty battery pack, 5.77 oz (featherweight) /7.4 oz (brass)

      With Critical Standard sized battery: 6.37 oz (Featherweight) / 8 oz (Brass)

      *Motor is wired for the sharper hit. (If using a clipcord, that would be "positive up")

      The 46er is a culmination of my versions 4-6 Sidewinders, remastered and enhanced to perfection.
      This machine features a very large stroke adjustment range that can suite single needle work, all the way up to the largest liners and mag shaders.

      This machine is very strong off the tip with a great follow-through.  Its number one purpose is as a strong, precise, off the tip liner; though It has proven to be much more capable.

      Features include:
      • Wider springs for more durability.
      • Large, easy to turn, hardened steel stroke wheel. -Has pre-set stroke range and middle timing mark to prevent the machine from getting too far out of tune when experimenting.
      • Hardened alloy steel impact pin.  -positioned towards the rear of the frame to help with noise
      • Large cam with precise timing mark. -allows for easier, and more precise impact alignment checks
      • Smooth, easy clamping tube vice.
      • Forward weight distribution for better ergonomics.
      • Beautiful brass armature bar, perfectly balanced for a strong, confident, and  consistent hit.  
      • O-ring groove in the bar allows for a more silent option (though will reduce performance as well)
      • Reliable Mabuchi motor - because they run forever without losing consistency. 
      • Standard (brass frame construction): 6oz
      • Featherweight  (7075 aluminum frame): 4.4 oz
      Recommended voltage range: 4 - 6.5 volts

      Approximate stroke range: 2 - 4mm  (keep in mind the stoke goes up more due to the springs.  The stroke of a Sidewinder cannot be compared to other rotaries as the hit is completely different)

      Polarity: Positive up - spins motor clockwise - slaps harder, ideal for large grouping liners
      Positive down - spins motor counterclockwise -slightly passive hit, ideal for shading and fine line
