In Reply to: RE: If one already has a VPI 16.5.... posted by Ivan303 on September 05, 2020 at 05:55:15
Not long after I got my Kirmuss, now two years ago, I sold my 16.5 on CL. It had become completely obsolete and I needed the space it was taking up. I got $350 for it.
The microfiber drying clothes do a superb job all by themselves. There's zero need for vacuuming. And they are WAY quieter and easier to use than the VPI.
I'd likely still use the VPI, if only for the ability to do a serious rinse after uSonic cleaning.
Kirmuss does not rinse. The rinse is via a distilled water spray manually applied outside the machine after the final bath. Further down this thread I posted about the regimen I've settled on.
I thought long and hard about keeping my 16.5 to do the drying, but the distilled water spritz and microfiber drying clothes worked so well I just stopped using the 16.5 altogether. And finally sold it.
I invested in several more of the drying clothes though. After I finish cleaning a batch I soak the drying clothes in a distilled water bath, wring them out and let them air dry.
i like the harbor freight microfiber cloths, cost effective and easy to get.
i lay the LP on its side after the spin clean and with the cloth folded in fours, follow the grooves lightly each side and then air dry on lucite photo frame lucite tripods from walmart. it's what i would do if i had the Kirmuss.
i wash them in the washer using no fabric conditioner and air dry on a rack.
