Ok, I"ve read most pages. So far for those of us who aren't quite as savvy as you guys, I can buy the motor/spindle assembly and the ultrasonic unit from Louis and I'll be set??? also, what have you all come up with for the best fluid? Is there something with no alcohol? Could you use the Spin clean fluid that encapsulates the dirt and drops to the bottom? Do you need a filter unit or just clean and refill every X amount of records cleaned? thanks all. Amazing thread.

Default Finally Finished

Well, I finally got mine done. Yeah, it's butt ugly because I can't drill a hole straight and I can't line things you straight, but it's finished and it works!
Much, much thanks to BBFTX for I hounded him ceaselessly.
Will try and upload a photo, but I'm having issues trying to up load. For some reason, nothing appears on my desktop where I put the photo when I get to the upload screen. This happened in another forum when I tried to upload.
Can't figure it out.

Hi ebuzz,
Congrats on getting your unit completed! Glad to hear it. Have you cleaned some records yet? Results?
Cheers,

> BB The IPA I got is 90%. I saw a 70% concentration, but opted for the 90%.
Would that pose an issue re: flammability and the ultrasonic cleaner?

I use 99% I got from an electronic store and have had no issues. At the concentrations that are suggested (2-3 oz per 1.5 gallon) there should not be any flammability problem.

Nah - nor me. To be fair, I've only tried online. I might have more luck if I start calling suppliers.

Well, mine seems to be working fine, but I've only tried it on some older LPs so far, a label got lil wet. I can't really tell how well the unit is generating US waves never having a US cleaner before. It there a test?
Also, I've found that the weight of 3 LPs causes the shaft to sag and hit the bushing and not turn. Two work ok as long as I wedge a piece of metal under the shaft to lift.
What I do wrong?
Thanks

I think you need to support the "free" end of the shaft.
