Dear CED Fans,

Just a reminder on cleaning CED's.  The best method I have found is to
use a
Nitty Gritty record cleaning machine with the 78 adaptor.  The machine
runs some
cash, but they really clean your records like new and they get rid of
skipping on videodiscs that are due to dust and clutter.

Also, the clean records and videodiscs make a huge difference in
extending the
life on your stylus.  I have noticed that on my turntable and my
machine the stylus last much longer with good sound and picture.  My
family uses
our videodisc machine 3-4 times a week to watch movies.  Before the
Nitty Gritty
machine, we were changing the stylus about every 4-6 months and they
were gunked, and I would clean them to extend the use.  With the clean
discs, I haven't had to clean the stylus in six months and going, and
the picture is still superb.

I am not connected with Nitty Gritty.  I am just a very satisfied
customer that
would like other CED fans to know that these machines are worth the
purchase, and can get rid of most of your skipping. Nitty Gritty is on
the web, you can order from them too.

Peace.  signed James
