That does look good. Now if I can figure out how to build the darn thing! How long did you say it would take to get one of these to us?

I was happy to see my shipping notification this morning for my Vibrato USC. Looks like it should arrive on July 9. I'll post something after I get a chance to give it a spin.

Cheers

Default The Vibrato machine arrived

Gents,

Yesterday, I received my 6Q/60khz unit from Louis Steele of Vibrato LLC. From the previous posts, as you'll recall, this unit was inspired by this thread. It shipped safe and sound with excellent service from Louis.

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

Default One more thing

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

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.

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.
