Record album to digital conversion (& VHS conversion?)

A while ago I bought a good used turntable just to convert one record album to a digital format so I could listen to it on my computer or iPod. To make a long story short, I never converted the album but I have almost all of the necessary equipment (turntable, receiver, cables & maybe a spare computer).  The only essential thing I lack is a good record cleaner / brush.

Is anyone else interested in using this equipment to covert records to a digital format?   We don't have a lot of spare table top space to store this equipment right now, but if others want to use it I'll bring it in.

I also have old VHS tapes with family recordings that I'd like to convert to digital and I bet there are others with 8mm film that they'd like to digitize.  I think it would be nice if we could put together a workstation with all the necessary equipment and instructions needed to do these kinds of conversions. Does anyone have any of the additional equipment we'll need or want to help?

I have one of the inexpensive VHS to USB decks, which allows you to get a digital video file onto a PC.  You can then master a DVD from it.
