Now record cleaning is faster and easier with the Nitty Gritty 2.5FI. Nitty Gritty's unique Capstan record drive automatically rotates the record during fluid application and vacuum suction-eliminating the need to manually scrub the record. "FI" stands for Fluid Injection, which means the 2.5FI has a fluid reservoir with a pump that automatically applies fluid to the VAC Sweep brushes. This makes applying the fluid easier, with less wasted fluid.
Using the Nitty Gritty 2.5FI machine is a breeze. First, use the pump to apply a small amount of Pure 1 or Pure 2 to the VAC Sweeps, then set your dirty LP on the spindle. Flip the power switch one way to begin rotating the record. The VAC Sweep fibers scrub the record as it rotates. Flip the switch the other way to turn on the powerful vacuum that cleans and dries the record. Now flip the record over and repeat. How simple is that?
A slide-out waste tray on the bottom allows easy disposal of the dirty fluid. With these automatic features, you'll be able to clean more records in less time!
Both the 1.5FI and 2.5FI models come with a 16 ounce bottle of Pure 2 to get you started.
What's the difference between the 1.5FI and 2.5FI?
The only difference is in the cabinet. The 1.5FI is a MDF cabinet with a vinyl simulated wood veneer that is a Black Ash finish. The 2.5FI model has a solid oak cabinet. This is purely an aesthetic choice.
