This is really the crux of Rafter242's argument. The very fact that there is something left behind, which dictates the need to dry off the record, means there is something left on the record after the cleaning process (albeit, maybe only distilled water). This is a step that both the machines he mentions include in their regime.Once off the cleaning machine he puts the platter onto a drying rod by slipping the rod through the spindle hole and then leaves it hangin' for a while.
My point was that machines like the Monks and the Loricraft leave the records bone dry (meaning absolutely nothing is left behind) and immediately playable.
Also, I don't have to wear hearing protection when doing this job .
