the first link still requires you to buy all of the other materials.   The second link doesn't lift, it's no better than a DIY.   I still like the one at the top of this thread MUCH better.

Without a doubt I'd rather have an ultrasonic that does at least three records at a time. The good news is there are a lot more options and cheaper options than a year ago. Between some med bills and holidays coming up, I have to watch from the sidelines. Luckily the VPI I rebuilt is still going strong, but sometime next year it would be nice to upgrade for a deeper clean.

Interesting looking device.  It may be overpriced as the ultrasonic tank (6L) should be around $125.  The manual sliding bracket, motor drive, label covers/spacer should be around $300.  It look like some thought effort was put into the design. 

I can state without hesitation the tank and the ultrasonic cleaning transducers work well on that tank as displayed.  I have that same unit.  Chinese built but it works!  Members here have heard the results on their records that I cleaned.

These designs are getting better and the price point is moving lower.

Thanks for the feedback.  I contacted them and they said the motor spins 6 revolutions a minute.  I plan to make them an offer of $400 and see how it goes.   You never know.

Well, those sellers countered my offer of $375 with an offer of 6% off their sang price so about 575 including the 55 Shipping.    Might just order the ultra cleaner unit and that upright spinner.

I think the one in the link spins at 6 rpm, mine is 1/2 rpm.  I don't know if speed is an issue for effective cleaning?

Yes, I think slower would be better.   The Sonic Spin kit allows 1.5 to 7 minutes per revolution.

Also seeing this heating unit for around $115 .

Anyone interested in one if I can get the price down to $100 each by ordering a few?

Carl  Is this the same one you have?  Thinking I might want  a higher frequency than 40 Hz I think this is.  Any opinions?

Ordered the  3 LP Ultra sonic spin kit. 

seller has some "seconds" that may have a few marks on the chrome but is mechanically perfect at a discounted price.

Now  waiting to hear back on my offer for the 6L tank.
