Brush is carbon fiber. Liquid is distilled water 3 part and isopropyl alcohol 1 part. I will put together build details soon. Omishra just gave good idea of adding vacum, planning to buy 12v wet dry vacum and add to it.Thanks look good,could u provide more details please regarding the brush and the cleaning liquid.
You dont need to change the motor for speed just reduce the size of platter diameter it is driving. However I guess cleaning liquid will be thrown out at 100rpm. Instead of speed you need more torque to clean the record with big brush on it. You can use geared motor used in robotic kits. I guess they are DC so speed can be controlled. Take safety care if AC motors are used. Tonearm also serves no purpose unless you are making vacuum cleaning machine like Keith Monks.Very soon I am going to build vinyl cleaner TT. I am getting a working TT (but may be tonearm has any issue). I will change the motor to any faster one (more RPMs, 100+) or put that motor under platter directly (with DIY skills). Will put cleaning brush on tonearm. Let see how it goes.... (Finger crossed).
Actually what I have in my mind is... I will make the platter spindle like bolt with threads (Chudi), after putting the record.. I will put custom made label saver and tight that with nut to keep the label dry. I want to put all these in custom made deep cabinet, which will keep the internal parts safer.
For that, use rubber flange or washer of 4" diameter from hardware store. Even bathroom flush has used those rubber washers of 4" or what 100mm diameter.For now, I have cut the label portion with 2 end point lines from a damaged/wrapped vinyl record. After that made the edges smooth by using sandpaper (80 number), then used 120 number to make it silky smooth. [emoji38]
Thanks a lot, what exactly is iso propyl alcohol? Can u walk into a chemist and ask for it?
Anybody tried cleaning their records using Fevicol?
