Overview: The Okki Nokki RCM II record cleaning machine restores your
record collection to its original glory. The RCM II comes with cleaning fluid
concentrate, a goat's hair brush, plastic vacuum arm, and record clamp.
Design: The RCM II features a powder-coated aluminum chassis which is
resistant to liquids or cleaning agents. Any heat generated by the vacuum motor
is dissipated through the chassis. The solid construction makes the unit less
susceptible to structural vibrations. The 11.5" diameter platter is raised and
easy to access. The neoprene platter covering is easy to clean and resists
moisture. The unit has a master power switch on the back, with a three-way motor
switch (forward, reverse, off) and a vacuum switch on the front.
Dual Direction Motor: The RCM II's motor can rotate the record in both
directions, clockwise and counter-clockwise. It turns at approximately 15 rpm.
Cleaning Fluid: The supplied cleaning fluid lifts dirt and debris out
of the grooves. The fluid comes in a concentrate, and should be mixed with
purified water before applying to your records. The entire 50ml bottle
concentrate mixes with a liter of water (1.06 quarts).
Vacuum Cleaner: The RCM II's built-in vacuum removes both dirt and
fluid from the surface of the record.
Procedure: The record should be placed on the platter and secured with
the clamp. After removing obvious dirt and debris from the surface of the
record, the fluid is applied to the record and spread evenly using the goat's
hair brush. Pressing down gently to flex the bristles of the brush, you should
hold the brush on the record for 3 to 4 revolutions in the forward direction,
then repeat in the reverse direction. Next, the fluid and dirt is vacuumed off
of the record with the plastic vacuum arm. Typically, two revolutions is
required for removing the fluid. The fluid is pulled into a reservoir, which
should be emptied after 20 to 30 cleanings.
Optional Accessories: Okki Nokki offers the following accessories for
the RCM II, including an
cleaning brush (with extra
velvet cleaning strips),
cleaning fluid (50ml),
and a replacement
