Ultrasonic Cleaners (RR)
I just used one of these in a Physics lab to clean some 45s and it worked great. I just used tap water and dipped the 45 into the ultrasonic cleaner and dirt just started visibly coming off. This was after I used regular record cleaning fluid and a rag.I don't know how this compares to a VPI, but this could possibly be a cheap solution.I used a lab grade ultrasonic cleaner, but has anyone used one of those cheap jewelery ones you can get for around $40? I know you can get smaller lab-grade cleaners for around $200, but if a jewelery one works fine, I'd rather save the money.Also, any suggestions for fluid? Tap water? Purified water? Any special fluids?
