Dan Robinson Snr Tribute Machines...final stage

Following on from my previous posts, here's more info on the Dan Robinson Snr Tribute Machines.

The last week of April 2013
With the last four of the 12 x Tribute Machines almost tuned, I've now focused my attention onto the other items that form what's going to be called the "Tribute Bundle".

Tribute Bundle consists of:

  • 1 x Tribute Machine bearing a number between 1 to 12 & tuned to Dan's specifications.
  • 1 x Black Tea-Towel embroidered with Dan's signature.
  • 1 x Allen Key (Hex Key) to suit the 8-32 UNC Socket Head Cap Screws used on these Machines.
  • 1 x Certificate of Authenticity with Dan's & Colin's signatures, Machine number & the date of issue.
  • 1 x Bio that covers the key points of Dan's influence & involvement within Australian Tattooing.
  • 1 x Sticker made especially for "Aussie Tattoo Legends - Dan Robinson Snr Tribute Machine"

Everything that's to be included within the "Tribute Bundle"

Please note that none of the prototypes are for sale, they've already been appointed to specific owners.

Dan Robinson Snr Tribute Machines...production 2

Following on from my previous posts, here's more info about the Dan Robinson Snr Tribute Machines.

From mid January 2013 until late April 2013
During discussions on how I intended to build the Machines, my wife Marie suggested it should all be documented or recorded in some way.
With precious little info about anything regarding Aussie Tattooing, it seemed like a good idea.

Chris Reid was the obvious choice to do this doco, being that he's a Tattoo Artist & Filmmaker, plus we've known each other since the very early 80's.
For Chris, this presented him with the perfect opportunity to finish a doco he'd started on Dan Robinson Snr several years ago.
So with Chris now on board, it was "Full Steam Ahead"...

This last photo is of Dan inspecting one of the 4 x prototypes which we'd just finished tuning.
