For sure get a record cleaner. And you’ll need a protractor of choice. I have a very nice Dennesen Soundtraktor but they are made out of unobtanium now. There are lots of other good choices out there. Maybe some liquid stylus cleaner too.
I hope your situation doesn’t turn out like a friend of mine did. He invested thousands into a nice vinyl rig and about 100 records only to discover he was intolerant of even the slightest surface noise. He dumped everything a couple of months later. The good news is I got most of his records pretty cheap.
Good luck with your newfound journey.
