For all to note:
In the Keith Monks manual, those who read it through will see that I highly
recommend the Disc Doctors chemistry and brushes... either on their own, or
as an adjunct to the Monks machine.
They do as well as the Monks machine, but you trade off elbow grease and
speed for a kit costing under $100. For those with large holdings, the
Monks makes ultimate sense.
The Monks machine is portable in the military sense... you can put handles
on it! If you are traveling in a large car or van with a kit for doing
record transfers at the owner's site, as has been discussed, it becomes
worth while for the throughput... you can be cleaning the next record while
transferring the previous one.
For anyone who wants it...
WRITE ME OFF LIST AND ASK FOR THE KEITH MONKS ARCHIVIST MACHINE MANUAL...
I will send it to you as a PDF file attached to an email.
For the next few days, I'll be in Washington at a Library of Congress
Audio Engineers Roundtable on Preservation Transfer, and I'm sure I will
meet a few of the ARSC list members there.
