    Well, I thought it seemed a little long winded and watched a few YouTube Vids to see how everyone else fared. I'll have a look at that later. Cheers matey!

    20 revolutions?
    I am glad I have an Okki Nokki mk2. Just over one revolution each way and I have a dry record.

    Well, based on the fact there an adjustment that may contribute to its effectiveness, I may end up replacing the numbers I've quoted. Enjoy the Okki Nokki.

    If the vacuum arm makes good contact, then how will dropping the spindle help?
    What solution are you using to clean the records?

    Well, I think it is making good contact but having read Neil's suggestion I looked about online. A few people have said the same thing so there might be something in it. Maybe it's not quite level or something. I'll have a closer look later.

    I'm using the concentrate Project "Wash-it" solution diluted with water. It came with the unit.

    The moth dries in one turn, although I give it 2 usually. certainly shouldnt take any more than 2 or 3.

    It shouldn't take 20 revolutions to dry. I've had mine since the 2nd batch back in March 2017 and it has always taken no more than 4-6 max. I usually have it vacuum for 2 revolutions each direction and it does the job. If I've put too much fluid on, I'll do 1 extra pass each way and that sorts it.

    BTW, not sure if the wash-it fluid is still the same mix but I know they had to change it as it was causing customs issues. I believe the batch mine is from contains no isopropyl. I chucked it away and instead used some of The Right One fluid which is excellent stuff.

    Thanks Simon. I'm going to Do a video later so everyone can see what is happening. I'm starting to wonder if it needs to go back. Regardless of how well it cleans in the end, if it's not doing it correctly I will return it.

    Oliver - did you watch the distributor's demo video?

    They just do one revolution each way ...

    Looks like your machine has an issue!
