Record Cleaning Machines

How long does it take for the Loricraft to vacuum dry one side of a record? If 90 rpm presumably 6 or 7 minutes?

…about 20-30 seconds.

So it can’t be following the groove then as a cartridge would take that long to play an LP at 90 rpm.

Have to admit I’ve never looked closely at the business end of a Loricraft to see what it actually does.

No, it doesn’t follow the grove, but the movement is linear across the record.

I guess it must be sucking up from a band 5mm wide or so?

Yeah, sounds about right. It does remove any remnants of liquid very effectively tho - you can play the record immediately. :+1:

I used to assume that I would sell my Hanss rcm when I bought the VV but it’s just too useful for drying.

Iirc, the rate at which the arm traverses across the disc is driven by some sort of mechanism in the arm base.

I’m guessing it straddles 3-4 grooves as the nozzle rides on a thread. Probably 45ish seconds from label to run out

Guess he had to get something wrong, law of averages / sod etc.
