I inquired as to the operating frequency. We shall see if they respond.

Default The flood gates have opened

Seems like the ultrasonic cleaners may have hit some critical mass here. Could vacuum style cleaners be a thing of the past?

Anybody on here? Looks well thought-out. What's with the external fish filter?

Just got word from Klaudio that their new Ultrasonic Record Cleaner operates at 40kHz.

Hi Audiostar,
I'm just not in the business of selling these things. I've got too many other projects going on and don't have the time, unfortunately.
If I had the time, I'd probably do it for about $1800 all in, including a 60khz cleaner, all the other parts, filter setup, and labor.
Cheers,
B B.

Hi bbftx,
I have no intention of buying. I wanted to compare your price with the Audio Desk which sells for $3995.00 I still think you should sell one per year at $2000.
The once per year sale would finance your DIY projects! Take care.
P.S. I just got an idea. Those of you who have created your own diy projects
should sell your stuff on a limited basis to finance your next project.

I've seen this unit advertised on Audiogon. For the price, you could do lots better on your own. He's using a 40khz ultrasonic machine, not 60khz. The motor and gear setup doesn't look real durable to me, and I'm skeptical of the claimed 0.7 micron filter. That looks like an aquarium filter pump to me, and a true 0.7 micron filter (that doesn't allow fluid bypass) requires a pump that can handle a bigger pressure drop across the filter. Most aquarium pumps aren't up to the task. It could be verified one way or the other if he specified what filter and pump he's actually using, but I don't see that listed anywhere.
I'm guessing the builder reads this forum, as the addition of his pump and filter came well after I described my implementation of this idea. Yet, he gives no credit to the ideas that many of us DIYers have put forth in this thread.
