Pixels,of course! I thought the pics were small already. The rcm took me 3 or 4 days to fabricate. I felt rushed to finish it, or just eager. One benefit not used by the innovator is that I mounted the attachment onto the box so all I have to do is push a button and the hose disconnects. The hose just clicks right on and off of the box, ready for storage.Im still considering fabricating that arm though. Pvc would be quick.

Hey TV and CC...Thanks for posting this info! I'm going to start gathering materials to to try to build one...based on your posts. Very Happy
Would some kind of catch tray (for the vacuumed cleaning fluid) be a good idea...if I'm going to be cleaning large numbers of records one after another?

That's never been an issue for me. I'm in such a dry climate the vacuumed liquid evaporates without accumulating. I'll periodically pull the back cover off the machine and clean out the inside of the cabinet. However, I suppose a filter and fluid catchment jar would be ideal.

Most or all of the liquid pulled from the vacuum evaporates before it even reaches the motor/box. Get a long hose. The hose I use is almost 4 feet long, still has great suction. Two spins and the liquid is gone from the record. If there is still concern, maybe you could put in a filter or trap before the motor. You might have to get inventive.

You know, I've been thinking about this as well but I wonder, is it necessary to have the disc spinning? Couldn't I just put it on a soft, clean lint-free cloth, wipe the brush around it, then suction off the fluid with a wet/dry vac (which I have already)? All I'd need in that case is some pvc to make the slotted, velvet-lined brush to attach to the vac and one of those brushes. Can anyone think of any drawbacks to this system?

In theory, your method will work. In practice, it will be inefficient, slow, and cumbersome. There's a real advantage to having the record clamped to a spinning platter when it comes to control of the process and cleaning large numbers of records.
