    For those dealing with static electricity of the stylus running through the record groove like I am, I have your solution... The SPI Westek 94000 Workstation Ionizer.

    Place it close to the platter and it eliminates static electricity on the record. Works great! I was getting tired of the huge static charge building up on the record after play and then attracting dust. My Zerostat could not neutralize this static. I have a whole house humidifier and it does not prevent this static build up. The SPI Westek Ionizer is the best solution I've found.

    Try Pixall treatment on your vinyl.

    Ah , on looking , this might not now be available.
    But most anti-static record treatments should do the job , and be rated for years of service.
    My Frank Zappa 1979 pressings were all pixalled from new (Joe’s Garage etc) , and 40 years later still look like new , with zero dust.
