I'd throw in a mention for the Nitty-Gritty line . If you only have a

job and have very strong vacuum suction. I prefer manual models for the
Nitty Gritty line.

Personal experience and online links both very welcome. I need to clean and digitize a few hundred 78s so a machine that is at least semi-automated would be great.
