Thanks, Carl.  See what you started......

Seriously though,  the first 12 records  I cleaned were very clean records that I was preparing to list for sale, so didn't see much difference in them.  I had already washed them with the CanFab vacuum machine I bought from Mark.   Will be cranking up today with a couple dozen very dirty records and see how it goes.   

Carl, besides the distilled water, what other additives do you suggest I add to clean?  Unscented dish soap....PhotoFlo....so many things, so little time

Thanks
Mike

Greetings Mike,

I suggest that you usw Tergikleen which is available from Amazon for about $20 or so>  Just a drop or two of liquid dish soap will also work.  I also suggest doing a final rinse/wipe with just water using your vacuum cleaner to remove any soap that may remain from the ultrasonic cleaning.

These machines work great but you can't clean a bad piece of vinyl and make it sound new, but it will definately improve.

I'll have to drop over and see you machine in action.  (if I survive the mauling from your dog  >:( )
