About a week ago I negotiated a deal with the owner of an Apilus SM-500 epilator (the one posted in the ebay thread) I thought I got a decent deal at $1099.00, but there seems to be some stuff missing, which is probably the reason.
The machine came with manuals, AC plug, Foot switch, steel handle electrode, memory card, and two needle cords and holders,
I know im missing the Roller electrode, but im not sure if im missing any thing else or not. There are two rubber holders on the back of the machine and I can’t figure out what they hold. So I guess im missing more than what I can think of. How important is the roller electrode? With my thick hair anaphoresis doesn’t seem like something I would use any way.
On a side note, I read the manual cover to cover and with the information from that alone I almost feel confident to start experimenting. The bazillion pre set programs (in Omni-Blend mode) are all I plan to mess around with, which seem simple enough because everything is set and timed for you. The way the manual makes it sound, all you need to do is be good at inserting the needle, and presets will do the rest.
Im hoping that I might be able to avoid buying those expensive books through the programmed foresight of the machine supplemented with maybe a decent online tutorial on technique? Does anyone know of one? I don’t have a problem with reading, or learning more about the process, I just don’t have much money for books after buying the epilator.
The manual calls for Push-in needles using standard “F” shank. I’m a little lost on what that means. Also what size needles do you recommend for course hair? What brand of needle?
