Just wondering if anyone can vet the Platter Cleaning Tool avail. at a major data recovery tool firm.
Not going to post any links - but some may have gotten an email from Tina.

Thx.

I don't know who Tina is, however, I think your money is better spent paying someone to teach you. The "kit" after that will cost you 50$ + chemicals.

The only problem with Tina's tool is, it doesn't have adjustable speed, and there's no information how fast it's spinning the platters.

The price seems to be reasonable, but they are not telling you some of the important details about the product...

Offtopic.. When it comes to platter cleaning, it really depends what kind of chemicals you can use, depending on the pollution. About +90% cases you don't need any chemicals to clean the platters.

But sometimes One case or Two of those ugly cases cover your expenses for the whole remaining year..

Thanks for your comments, we use HFE-7100 as our go-to.
Just didn't have any experience with Tina's products - we typically just use a dedicated chassis and it works fine.
Good points regarding the RPM.

What's the deal here?

https://www.dolphindatalab.com/hdd-platter-cleaning-workstation/

If I click on "PRICE: USD30", I'm served up an invitation to pay $30 to Dolphin, but for what?

HDD Platter Cleaning Workstation Pro. contains the following components:

1, Cleaning hardware workstation;
2, Platter fix nut for 2.5″ platter;
3, Platter fix nut for 3.5″ platter;
4, Power Supply AC Adapter.


It's essentially a chassis with the spindle extended and platter adapters. The same could be achieved with parts from anyone's fuckitbucket, in fact I'm pretty sure I've seen a video of a home brew solution somewhere in the past.
