Default Record cleaning?

I'm pretty sure I've seen projects or reviews in the past but couldn't find them.

I was thinking about buying a Knosti cleaning device. After I read this review I'm not so sure anymore

Are there any other payable solutions?

Default alternative

I have been using the knosti for over 25 years now. It does work and is the cheapest solution.

The next step is nokki nokki, I bought one recently and it does a much better job. If you have a lot of records in the end you will save on fluids by using this device. The NN is noisy and has a lower WAF.

regards

Talk about big steps ;-)

Knosti = about 50 euro
Cadence Okki Nokki = 325 euro (at rikstoet.nl)

Other then some diy options I am not aware of an alternative intermediate step.

And after 25 years of good service and over 1000 records this is a minor investment

I am going the diy route, hope to build it this weekend.

I have an old, non working turntable I will use. I plan to use my shop vac for the vacuum, will cut a slit in a crevice tool, and line the slit with felt or something similiar.

I bought some record research super vinyl wash, and the disk doctor pads to actually clean the records with.

Since I had the shop vac, and the broken TT already, my investment is about $20 for the disk doctor replacement pads and $30 for the super vinyl wash. And $5 for the crevice tool.

Hope this works.

Randy
