I thought I might throw out a thought here...

I have appreciated Tom's posts and input in the past. I appreciate 
Duane's input as well (and have used his product for years). Frankly I 
appreciate hearing from anyone who has valid suggestions and ideas - 
that's why I follow list-serves like ARSC, AMIA, etc. There's always 
something to learn here and something to take away from a thread.

I think both methods have valid points. I think the post was started by 
someone who was looking for an inexpensive method to clean disk 
recordings. In this context, Duane had valid input that was relevant to 
the original posters question. Tom suggested another avenue to consider, 
though it may have been outside of the original posters budget but still 
if they had not heard of a VPI machine, it would at least be good to 
know about it.

I also believe that the more familiar (experience) you have with a 
particular methodology, the better you have become at it and there is no 
substitute for experience and confidence you have in that method. One of 
my best friends is a professional bass fisherman. We spent a day last 
summer fishing together. He was yanking in one bass after another with a 
particular lure and fishing method I had never tried. I switched to his 
lure and method and didn't catch one fish for almost two hours. Finally 
I switched back to the lure I liked using and immediately began catching 
fish again. My friend smiled and said - it's not just the lure, it's the 
experience and confidence you have in it that plays an important part in 
your success.

I recon Duane could clean a disk better by hand than I could with a VPI 
machine because I've never used a VPI machine. I recon Tom could clean a 
disk better with a VPI machine than I could by hand because I seldom 
clean a disk by hand from front to end. Both are valid methods. Neither 
poster here is wrong depending on what you like and what your budget is.

I'd like to use a term I find myself using with my wife from time to 
time. Can we agree to disagree??

Regards,

John Schroth
