Thanks for the fun post! Made my day. The NYL record cleaner (pronounced 'nil') is an ultrasonic based record cleaner. It will consist of a holder for the records (up to 7 at one time), the ultrasonic tank itself, and a rinse tank. The process is:
Place the records on a shaft the holds them in the ultrasonic bath and spins them slowly. Leave them for 5 to 10 minutes or so.
Next the record holder assembly is moved to a rinse tank and left for 5 minutes or so. The solution in the ultrasonic tank is very weak so this step could be considdered optional
Finally the records can be air dryed, towell dryed using towells from discdoctor, or vacuumed dry on a vacuum machine. I have a design for a cheap'n nasty vacuum dryer and will offer it if enough folks interested in NYL need a vacuum dryer.
Right now the tank is here and the parts are being cut by the laser this week. Desparately trying to have the prototype ready for VSAC - even if it is a bit rough around the edges I should have pics by the beginning of Oct.
Price will depend mostly on mycost for ultrasonic tanks but I am trying to keep it in the $700.00 range for the tank, custom record holder/spinner, and the rinse tank. Most of the cost is the tank so it governs the cost of the unit.
Hope that helps - I did not want to kill anyone......
