Cleaning HDD Heads & Platters

You can buy 20 for 16.42 Euros here. Unfortunately, S/H is probably 164 Euros. Fischer Scientific in Ottawa list a number of cleanroom swabs available in smaller quantities; I must visit and have a look. if you can get them for $1 USD each, I'll take 50. Only 950 more takers required. LOL

If you want, I can get those here to Portugal and then send back to you.
It will be allot cheaper.

Wow, thanks for that, William! I'll look for a supplier here in North America, or do you know of one?

I just ordered some similar to the HUBY-340 CA-008 (which were out of stock) from drivestar.biz, 100 each of the BB-013 and BB-013, all for under $20 CAD delivered by a slow boat from China.

I think I'll give these a try before following up on the "BCS 400 Nylon Tip Tupfer" until I see if these work okay. (I hope you didn't order a case of them, Nuno!)

Thanks, Nuno. What do you use for cleaning heads and platters (other than the occasional dry cleanroom wipe for platters)?
