Once we know that, we can figure out how to overcome these limitations, and engineer a better running machine… Anyway, Machinegun Magazine is published by Eikon and in theory has a website at machinegunmagazine.

By making it run at maximum speed, we will learn what the limitations of each part of the machine are. Carbon plated needles are generally nickel or chrome plating over a carbon steel needle — not some kind of carbon plating on a needle. Speeds of to Hz are common for shaders, and speeds as high as Hz are used for liners.
