Hi all Spread over a 3 days during the last fortnight, a friend and I built our own home made vacuum record cleaner for which I have posted 2 images below. We based it on a couple of different designs we saw on the internet and made a cross between the two. I have a question regarding the vacuum tool and how to use it...... When vacuuming the record does the tool with it's slit covered in velvet either side need to touch the record when sucking the liquid from it, or does it just need to hover slightly above the record, when I watch the various video's on "You Tube" I get the impression the tool touches the record, am I correct in that assumption??? Any comments are welcome.
