  • Chipped record/ Glue?

    I have a record with a chipped run in groove. The two bits are still here and and I was wondering if I should/ could glue them back in? It's in the run in so playback won't be affected I hope. Anyone done such a crazy thing before? If so what glue?

        If it's only for cosmetic porpoises then super glue or Gorilla glue should work, but it'll never be a silent repair. I've never been tempted to try such a thing myself though

          for Styrene 45s then a tiny bit of polystyrene cement would work if you are very careful I guess (from memory of Airfix kits it slightly dissolves the plastic)

          For vinyl you just need to check the glue is safe to use with PVC.
          I've got some solvent for connecting PVC pipes, but don't think i'd recommend it on records!

            We only like PVA glues round these parts. Powerful epoxy or contact glues, which I think are what you're expressing curiosity about, make us nervous.

              I was thinking model kit glue? Maybe build a plane or so when I am done?

                model kit glue is the polystyrene cement i mentioned

                there is PVC cement available (at least in the US) but probably not worth hunting down a supply for one record

                  Okay, you asked for it. Here's an 18 minute video where John Manship glues a record back together and also cracks a styrene one and also says "saliva" a lot while rubbing spit onto a sticker label...

                    I've been wondering the same thing. I have a 45 with 1-2 cm radial edge crack. A tiny amount of super glue on the face of the crack, avoiding the playing surface, would hold the two sides together, no?

                      Don't glue cracked records is my advice, based on experience. Sometimes they play through, sometimes not. Glue only made things permanently worse in my experience.

                        I'll smash up some records and get some practice.

                          If it's just the edge, I'd go with loctite with brush

                            I'll get one of these.

                            It's two bits broken out of a US LP run in groove. Stops right at the music. The patented Manship method won't work here sadly.
