Hi i;m Jack from and Henley Designs. Today we’re going to have a look at the spin clean record washer system mk II this simple low-tech piece of equipment
consists of two rollers two brushes a bottle of record washer fluid and the record washer bath lets get on assemble this. The rollers drop into the slots at either end of the
bath itself you can either go for 12 inch records
ten-inch or seven inch the bath is also suitable
for washing shellac records next brushes these simply drop in to either side of the bath and now we are ready to go. We just need to fill up the bath with distilled water and also the record washer fluid and
then we are good to wash the records simply fill up the bath to the line
marked inside and now if you’re using the smaller
bottle supplied with the spin clean we use three caps full of record washer
fluid. It’s important to note when we do this it must be poured over the brushes to fully coat we’re now good to wash our records here ive got an old version of queens greatest hits so we are just going to slide this in untill it hits the rollers now the record needs to be turned three times in one direction and three times in the other direction.
Let’s get started I find it really helps to insert the
record with the label facing upwards that way I know when I’ve done a full
rotation the record is now clean. Take it out using one of the spin clean cloths just let it drip off for a minute let
the excess fluid come off the record and now using the other cloth just wipe off any excess liquid really important before playing your
record to ensure that it’s really dry and there’s no liquid remaining on it after its dry just insert the record back
into its sleeve and is ready to be played. I always get the question what do I do with the liquid after I’ve finished cleaning my records? well you can leave this liquid for up to
a week but if you are going to leave it, take the
brushes out give them a squeeze and now rinse them under the tap once they are rinced, leave them on top of the bath to just dry out naturally. If you need
any more accessories or you want to purchase any of our larger bottles of spin clean fluid just visit us at www.henleydesigns.co.uk
