Just joined after lurking for a while. I ordered a "Louis Steele special" (US cleaner) with intent to built a neat enclosure for it. Once the project is under way I'll post some pictures. Thanks to all those who have contributed to this thread thus far!

@ Louis: will it be available with 230V mains option?

Also, a recommendation: consider including metric specs for products.

VibratoLLC,

In the future, can you make a turnkey ultrasonic cleaner as an option?

I for one appreciate the cheap international shipping due to the enclosure doubt, and I'm really not going to stick this where the kids can screw with it or next to my nice hifi in the living room. The price looks right to me.

Are you talking about a turnkey Vinyl LP Ultrasonic Cleaner?
I have thought about it and priced and sourced some parts, although at this time I don't have the means financially to do this.
The orders I am receiving from this forum are the first I've received.
I'd also like to concentrate on fulfilling these orders before I take on any new projects!
Sincerely,
Louis Steele
Owner
Vibrato, LLC.

A lot of non DIY audiophiles are buying super expensive vinyl ultrasonic record cleaners. Perhaps in the future or distant future you can bring out your version of the ultrasonic record cleaners with everything included at a sane price or more affordable price.

The Vibrato Ultrasonic is certainly attractive at an affordable price. Other 60khz+ cleaners are upwards of $1K, i.e., the Elmasonic. For that price you might as well get the cleaner from ULTRASONICRECORDS.COM - Home, but that one is only 40hkz!
The worrisome thing for me with the Vibrato is that I don't know if you could attach the motor assembly to the lid the way it is in the first post here, with the PVP pipes. I don't think I've got the ability of the tools to do it any other way.

I've ordered the Vibrato, this is just too good a deal to not......thank-you.

I DIY a lot, its a way to spend time on another aspect of the hobby. I understand that a lot of people dont have the skills or tools for a project like this, but would like to take advantage of the cost savings. Considering the $4K
price tag of the current ones available, I'm sure someone will come up with
a "thing" that will work with the Vibrato, but will keep the total cost much lower.

I understand Vibrato being hesitant....research, prototypes, warranty etc
would keep me away when my primary business was something unrelated.
He just wants to sell ultrasonic cleaners, thats his goal. I'm just happy I can
get one of these for a great price, with a great shipping cost.

Thanks again

Perhaps someone else who is interested could team with him and take his basic unit and build it into a nice enclosure that would contain a pump and filter system and the vinyl record holding and turning section. Seems like a very doable project that could make two people some real money and a nice side business. Just my 2 cents worth of lurking.

I can't wait that long for someone to come up with a workable unit. This thread has got me Jonesing for an Ultrasonic cleaner. My VPI 16.5 isn't enough anymore, it needs a supplemental cleaner. I just don't have the cajones to pull the trigger and invest the time and $ for this project. I need to come up with a plan of attack as to which build I could tackle with my limited experience and resources.
