Product Overview

This is a disk cleaning kit for 3.5" floppy disks. The kit includes a disk holder which convinently holds the disk open for cleaning on both sides, and a rotation tool for spinning the disk while cleaning it.

We suggest cleaning using compressed air, distilled water, and on stubborn cases 70% isopropyl alcohol applied using a non abrasive, lint free cleaning pad or swab while rotating the disk using the included rotating tool.

Disclaimer: This tool is intended to assist the user with the recovery of data from compatible diskettes, through the removal of objects on the magnetic disk. Please note, care is required when cleansing the magnetic disk and results are not guaranteed; so please use at your own risk.

This is a 3D printed design created and quality checked by our retro community collaborator Howard.

    I was looking for a tool to help with cleaning my collection of disks. This really simple, but brilliantly designed tool opens the disk enough and secure enough to allow cleaning. Great product and delivered really quickly. For the price, its worth every penny.

    Great for those dirty disks.

    Having quite a few Amiga disks that no longer read due to mould, I have grabbed this not expecting many to be readable, however having gently cleaned the surfaces with a touch of IPA I have been pleasantly surprised. I have now been able to back up the contents from most of them. This tool makes the task so much easier.
