The AC motor above was too fast, and I could not slow it down... I found the perfect motor on ebay:

http://stores.ebay.com/DC-Geared-Mot...enameZl2QQtZkm

Got it installed, turns at a perfect 10rpm at 12 volts and has a huge amount of torque.

Default vpi parts

Is it possibile to get the suction head part from the vpi without buying the whole unit.
Us DIY's can easily make a platter and they are quite expensive to buy just to chop up.
in fact i have about 6 old turntables laying around i could canobolize. ( i cant stop buying them, just as long as they are slightly better than my current one, diy porject is on hold for info)
Thanks
Ed Owens

Default One last question

For those of us wo never used / seen one of these in person.

What peices are needed for the suction?
I am assuming the modification kit is it, tube / clamp. This would then need to be mounted into a suction box to hook the vaccume to.

Correct me if my operation of this is incorrect.
Apply fluid,
scrub (holding brush, and hand rotating/ motor on)
scrub, reverse if desired
apply suction head and remove old fluid and cleaner

If these are answered i will soon have a DIY record cleaning machine

Thank you
Ed Owens
