  • Alternatives/ Homemade 45 adaptors

    So. the DJ before me took the 45 adaptors and I cant seem to find any middles/ stars or anything.
    What would you do as a last minute makeshift solution? Tinfoil? Bathplugs?

      If you have a Silver Medal for the Royal Horticultural Society's Whit Monday Show of 1879 it is the exact correct diameter.

      You would need to drill a spindle hole though (7.14mm).

        If you haven´t got any Silver Medals and a precision drill, I would look for a plastic bottle top of roughly the same diameter (mineral water/bleach) then run tape round the edge until it´s snug.
        then I´d go at it with a compass and a knife to get the hole right. Fill it with plasticine or blu-tak for a bit of weight and bingo.
        with plasticine or Play doh you can also make it look like a bare breast

                  No idea! I just thought of something in plentiful supply and easy to manipulate/ fashion into a centre. I'm one of those saddos who always has at least 3 adaptors in my wallet as contingency for record fairs etc. so I'd probably be able to get by
                  I might try them out though and get back to you.

                        You could also ask one of the young ladies in the audience if you might borrow a cotton reel from their handbag.

                          Simply remove all the records from your record box.

                          Look in the bottom of the box.

                          There will be approximately 17 spiders/spindle things that have been there, unknown to anyone, since 1987.

                          Sorted.

                            In our house everything ends up in the fruit bowl (except fruit). Batteries, Pen lids, 45 Adapters.
                            The answer obviously is that anywhere you go don't forget to pack the fruit bowl.

                              This is a very good point.
