Some words from SOBA himself on this machine:

"The #LoveBirdLiner is my first rotary machine! It was designed to be a good outlining machine for cartridge needles. Fixed drive bar with 4mm fixed stroke.

I have noticed that most rotaries for cartridge needles are trying to be a “one machine that does it all” and I understand why that is desirable. However- one machine really can’t do it all, if you want to do it right. Different needle configurations perform differently and we get better results using machines BUILT ON PURPOSE. We get better results when we use the proper tools for the job.

I was not happy with all the machines I own as far as their performance with cartridge liners, so I decided to make one. This is a direct drive rotary machine with all the pieces in places for the purpose of making quality outlines. It was really fun to design and the body shape allows for some really fun laser engraving opportunities. I hope you all think it’s neat. Cheers to another 20 years of making devices for the purpose making tattoos. Thank you all for your support and encouragement!!! 💚🙏🏼💚"
