5/5 - 'There are considerably dearer and fancier machines on the market, but this one follows the same basic principles as all of them... and results seem to me every bit as good as other machines Ive used over the years.' Richard Black

The MKII Moth Record Cleaning machine is based upon the well proven and accepted record cleaner that has been available from Moth for a number of years. The MKII version of the machine allows for bi-directional operation of the turntable in both the fluid application 'Wash' cycle and in the vacuum 'Drying' phase. The vacuum tube has been modified to allow for the new two way movement and to offer a more efficient vacuum system. A full size dark acrylic lid is fitted to the MKII Moth Record Cleaning machine. A version of the Moth RCM MKII will be made available in the very popular Kit form, complete in all parts with the exception of the enclosure. Plans are provided for the construction of the housing from 15mm plastic laminated construction board.

    Very effective and excellent value RCM

    Posted by Tim on 5th Jun 2016

    The kit of parts is very comprehensive and composed of good quality parts. The instructions are clear and comprehensive for an experienced DIYer.

    Rather than the suggested Contiboard and screws I made my plinth from moisture resistant MDF held together with dowels and with three coats of yacht varnish inside and out plus a final cosmetic paint coat.

    It went together perfectly except for drilling/screwing the holes for holding the vacuum motor in place - would be much easier if I had left that end piece off before the fitting!

    As a kit it lends itself to some customisation - I put handles on the side to make it easier to carry around!

    In use it cleans the records very well. As noted elsewhere, hearing protectors are essential, and you have to screw the clamp down hard to prevent it undoing during the drying cycle. I will experiment with a circle of rubber mat under the clamp to see if that helps.
