Alright. I need help.

I am working on a tattoo machine power supply for my tattoo artist. It's a National Supply XP-586. It's an old-school machine.

It's a two transformer system. The first transformer that steps down the power went bad. The only identifiable markings on the transformer is a number 440400. It has two green wires and two black wires. The black wires are obviously the 120 input.

Here in lies the problem. Since the transformer went bad, I can't get any solid readings on the transformer. The readings I could get weren't reliable, my multimeter was jumping all over the place. I also can't find any information, like wiring diagrams or parts lists about this power supply

So I've turned to social media to see if you guys can help me. Just to clarify the details. It's a National Supply XP-586. It's the primary transformer that steps down the 120 volt input power. Two green wires, two black wires and the number 440400 is printed on the top of it.

Any information you can google-fu or information you just know would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I am looking for a good book about human evolution. Something that goes into depth but is still easy enough for me to understand.

I understand the premise of it, I am just craving more information about it.

Anyone have any suggestions?

At the molecular level, 'The Relics of Eden' is fantastic.

This is a friend from high school. This is what he is doing with his life, running a mountain bike rental/touring/retail company in Morocco.  This is the video he posted to advertise.  The scenery is simply amazing, so if you're in that area, you should hit him up. Completely nice guy too.

+Fraser Cain created an app called "Phases of the Moon".  I decided to give it a go a few days ago and I absolutely love this app.  Constant updates on what type of phase the moon is in and it includes the distance to the moon. You can also check dates in the future or in the past to see what phase the moon is or was in.  It really is a cool app for .99 cents and it gives me the ability to plan out my time with the telescope.

It's in the play store and I am sure there is an iTunes version of it, i just don't have any apple devices.

Here is the link to the play store so you can check it out!

Then I am happy I have an Android device!

Definitely looking forward to more apps from you guys.  Anything that helps me in my amateur astronomy hobby is always appreciated.

I am not sure if I want to ask this question or not, but why do you refuse to use Steam?

You know why I love +NASA? Because they do stuff like this, with such a limited budget.  They have always, and will continue to amaze me.

Hi, just happy to be here
Bragging rights
I am not too big on braggarts. I graduated from ITT Technical Institute with a 3.89 GPA with an applied science degree. The main reason I went back to school was because of the decisions I made in High School. I wanted to prove to myself that if I actually applied myself I could at least appear to be smart on paper. I graduated Highest Honors and plan on going back to obtain my Bachelors Degree. Yes I know it's just ITT, but it means something to me.
