David. Thanks for the INFO.
I have already started pricing up and looking into a suitable vacuum but most of the ones I have looked at are rechargeable hand held, for ease of storage but the run times are NOT good, 10 to 15 mins that is not a lot if you want to clean a fair few records in one session. I'm going to have to look further into this there as got to be something out there.

What you want is small wet/dry canister vac than runs on AC power. My current one is a 2.5hp but that is overkill. Previously I had a smaller 1hp model and that worked fine - I'd still be using it if I didn't give it to a neighbor during a move. Even one slightly smaller than that is also fine. Main thing is it needs a standard sized hose. I forget the dimensions offhand.

Hey Jonathan,

This is a link to the vacuum that I am ordering.
I looked at it today at Lowes and it is not huge like my garage shop vac.
My garage one might suck the LP right through the hose. Ouch

Even still, as David suggests, this Dewalt one might be overkill, but the reviews that I read on it said it was relatively quite compared to other units.
We will see.

5 gallon is huge! Hopefully it works okay. I think a 1 or 2 or 2.5 gallon unit is more than good enough. :)

You are not wrong David,

I was picking for the lowest price and what I consider to be the better brand.
This Dewalt is larger than required, but I think my garage unit is well... ConfusedEmbarrassed

In the U.K., this from Amazon looks about right.

The one I looked at was Shop-Vac Micro one Gallon US which is about  3.8 L with a hose size of 1.25 in, it looked ideal but can't find it for sale in this country. I was on the UK website so they do sell it here.
