Default One more thing

For completists, here's the one page guide that Vibrato included with the unit.

For those considering it, I thought I'd post a few photos and a brief video demo of the unit in action. So far, it's a no-brainer at the price - simple to use, and a very different experience than my much bulkier and (40khz) NOISIER! ebay unit from China.

The photos depict what you get when your 11-pound box arrives at your door...

The video link takes you to youtube..

(Also, I'm in no way affiliated with Vibrato - other than being a happy customer)

cheers
Its a great relief that the Ultrasonic Cleaner arrived in good shape! Packing was done by a local UPS Store, and I am glad you posted photos of their good job.
Thank you for the kind words! It is more that I could have hoped for. I am glad that you are happy with a product that I worked so hard to get out to the public! Just when I was about to throw in the towel, out of the blue, you sparked interest in Vibrato that is growing daily. For that I am thankful!
As always, should you ever have any problems, do not hesitate to contact me.
Thanks again,
Louis Steele

Thanks for the pics and video of the Vibrato. I am expecting delivery of mine any day now. I have plans to take a large ammo can and custom fit the the internals of the Vibrato into it, complete with 6 RPM motor and arm and maybe a pump/filter based on suggestions from this thread. If this project works out I will post pics of the results and gladly share any tips I learned along the way. I have an inclination to build things into ammo cans (car stereos, desktop computers, and homemade power supply stations), hopefully I can add an US record cleaning machine to this list. More to come.

Update:
In my ignorance of shipping costs, after these initial orders have been fulfilled, I am forced to increase the cost of shipping. These new shipping rates are now in effect for all new orders and listed on our Tindie webstore.
I apologize to everyone who has not ordered yet. For those who have ordered, I will ship at the original rate.
In the meantime, I will continue to search for better rates to keep your costs down.
Sincerely,
Louis Steele

Vibrato, LLC.

Wow, big developments since the last time I checked in.
Louis/Vibrato, what a great unit you've come up with. I hope you enjoy the new cash-flow! Perhaps you can take some of that and do what the others have suggested and fit a filter + pump, hardware to mount the records and a motor to spin it, all within a case. I'd be glad to pay a bit extra for a non-transparent/plastic case as well.
I'll stay tuned to this thread!

Perhaps it will take someone working with Louis to create a turnkey record cleaner. If someone has all the dimensions for the mechanism and a parts list that is all over the counter available parts that would help. If I had enough of the information I could do a cad model of this assembly and create the drawings, I am sure I am not the only one who can do that.

Update to ammo can project: Received the Vibratto last week, disassembled and mounted in a large ammo can (plenty of room for internal pump). Made a mistake and I am currently remounting the transducers. Louis has been very helpful with advice and easy to communicate with. This coming weekend I'll have the unit completely installed in it's new case and hope to have the motor and spindle mounted and wired. Once I have a working unit I will post some pictures to give others' some ideas to maybe improve on. Honestly, with a jigsaw and grinder it is not very demanding to mount the vibratto into an ammo can - durable, interesting, portable, and give lots of space for pumps and great mounting surface for the spindle, arm, and motor.
