As many of you will have read, we will be having a charity record cleaning stall at the show this year with myself and Tim supplying a couple of VVs (ultrasonic) and a couple of wet-vac RCMs. 

However as we are both exhibiting systems we could do with some volunteers to manage the cleaning process. So if you think you have an hour or two to spare on the Sunday (Saturday you can do your own and throw money in an honesty pot) please put your name down. 

Volunteer List.

I'll do an hour. I've got a Moth and one of Tim's VV's myself so should be capable under supervision. 

Put me down for midday as I have a fair bit of travel to get there. 

90% sure I will be going.

Just a question...

How you gonna stop the ultrasonic getting too warm...if you wanna do a lot ..

Will the hotel let you have freezer space for picnic ice blocks...that's what I use to cool mine..

Kindest regards Julian

Hopefully as we have 4 machines, we can take one out of the loop to cool down as needed. 

Though I'm guessing we could try the picnic block route aswell if the hotel will play ball.

They might keep a few hours in a good insulating bag...

I don't really think it's a worry to be honest, I usually wash mine at about 40 degrees, you need to get to at least 60 before you can warp even the worst culprits. When I started I cleaned a few old records from the tip shop in boiling water, just to see, a couple of them warped slightly after 20 mins, they were nice and clean though.

I clean mine at a setting of 35 degrees. The cleaning action bumps that up so when it reaches 35 I turn the setting down, and it tends to settle between 36 and 40 - no problem at this level. 

@Lurch More of a problem is the noise - will the cleaning room be well away from any music room - 1 machine is loud, 4 machines running will be horrendous.

There are a couple of side alcoves near the entrance + a further 2 between restaurant and gents so should be okay for noise.

With the hour on hour off setup in Kingston John, I should be able to do a stint on the stand
