So I have absof'inglutely no idea how to:
* find your product,
* get the specs of it, and
* order it.

Perhaps you can enlighten me? (Which, for an excellent eBusiness site, you shouldn't have to - it should be all straight forward for the punters.)


Regards,

Andy
I apologize for the omission. Here is a link to our Tindie webstore:

Sometimes I forget that I am over 30 also!
If I can help in any other way, let me know.

We hope to have the circuit boards listed on our Tindie store within a month.

We also had a huge response to our 80khz Ultrasonic - we intended to sell just 2 or 3 to deplete our stock, but will be listing a few more (within the next week or two) to meet demand for a low-cost system. However, we will be changing the plastic housing to a different brand, since the previous version keeps arriving to us cracked and broken (from different vendors Click the image to open in full size. ). After this, we will not be manufacturing complete ultrasonic cleaners - just the circuit boards.

Thanks for your interest!

Yes! We are still making these, although slowly recently, as we tried to solve the shipping damage issue. We are now double-boxing all units to prevent damage.
Just listed a 6 Quart, 80khz as in stock minutes ago (4/23/15).
We also have a less expensive 6 Quart 60khz in stock. This one has a 2-30 minute Timer (no digital display), and no heater.

Hope to increase production of the 80khz.
I am hesitant to post when units are in stock for fear of spamming you guys.
Thanks for the interest!

Default Aluminum VS Plastic

We will only be offering the plastic for now.
We did order and receive a sampling of aluminum enclosures, and they look very nice!
Aluminum looks more professional, shields emi/rfi, and only bends instead of cracking.
Aluminum is MUCH more expensive, tends to be louder due to vibrations, and presents a shock hazard if there is a grounding problem.
Plastic looks homemade, can crack during shipping. But, it is lighter, less expensive, quiet, easy to work with and store.
Here is a mockup of the Aluminum version (not for sale). [ hope it appears]

In this image, you can see there is about a half-inch overhang on three sides, top and bottom. I do not know why this happened, since it did not show in our cad drawing. Otherwise, it looks good. We still have to put boards in it and run it thru tests. Cost wise, it will add approximately $150 to the listed price of our 6 Quart 80khz unit.
It would be interesting to see who prefers the aluminum over the plastic, despite the added cost.

Sincerely,
Louis

DIY Audio Members;
I received a message this morning that someone tried to access the Vibrato account more than five times then was locked out for failing to guess the password.
The IP address is 216.17.110.252 , which is anonymous but listed as a "comment spammer", harvester, etc.
Please be aware, as our company website was hijacked before by someone in China.

I also want to apologize for the limited availability of our ultrasonics. We are continually focusing on making a better product. We experienced problems with shipping damage, which was overcome by double-boxing our cleaners. Recently, there was some people experiencing leaks around the tank, which also has been resolved with better sealing techniques.
We also have experimented with aluminum housing to replace the plastic enclosures. We failed to measure correctly, account for board space and odd software presets, which means we have two sets of expensive scrap metal in our shop.
We hope to have a corrected aluminum cad file soon, and samples will be purchased. If all goes well, we will make them available as soon as possible.

Thanks for your patience and continued support!

Default Vibrato Update

Update on the Aluminum Enclosures:
We received the five sample pieces and everything fits together nicely!
Here are photos of the first assembly.
We will make a couple more, then make them available on our Tindie web store in a couple weeks ( they are not available yet).
Tentative pricing will be as follows:
6 Quart, 80KHz with Digital Thermostat and Timer = $675.50
6 Quart, 60KHz with Digital Thermostat and Timer = $645.75


I know this is quite a jump from the plastic enclosures, but the aluminum housings are much more expensive and require additional parts and work (such as a fan cover, translucent smoke-color acrylic display window, etc).

I will make an announcement here when the units are ready to order.
Your feedback is always welcome!
Sincerely,
Louis Steele

Looks awesome Louis. I don't know if you thought of it but a IEC connector for power would be a bonus as you can store easier with out having to wrap the cord around the unit.

VibratoLLC Louis, do your systems have sweep built in, or are both units running at the fixed KHz? I've heard sweep, moving a bit above and below the transducer's rated Khz provides some cleaning benefits in some applications. Whether it's beneficial when cleaning records, I have no idea.
