  • warps

    bloody hell, it looks like a significant amount of my records got some slight warping.
    i guess i just had too many house movings during the last 3 years.
    some of them are still playable, some skip for the first third of each side.
    it's a nightmare, strangely i'm not really upset, but still would like to hear ideas how i can get rid of those nasty warps.

    i guess stacking them tight isn't really an option, as the warps are pretty unremarkable.

    i might try the sun and glass thing, but it will take me ages to fix them all...

    I have managed to ruin a copy of Sonoton-Pollution by leaving it near the window on a very hot summer day. Every few months I pull it out and feel like an idiot and put it back. I tried to fix a few other warped 45s using hot water an a glass plate but that didnt really improve anything but I did burn my fingers.
    As long as they are playable I suggest you just live with it and move on.

    Maybe you can get a cheap version of this.

    Basically a glass record that somehow (science!) sucks the record closer to the surface. could be an option?

      yea, i'll probably move on and then come back in years time or sumthin asking for dewarping ideas.
      i guess every tenth record i have is now warped, and it striked me especially hard today when i tried to play the bill quick lp... i could live without the 60s psych....but bill quick!?!?

        i'd like to think that two of those hightech glass thingies would dewarp a record within minutes...

          maybe you can build yourself one of these? Two flat metalplates and a few screws will do probably.

          Me personally I dont put records in the oven as a rule.

            I know we've had the discussion before but I'd be very interested to hear if anyone has a successful method

              nah, you don't understand, i'm basically looking for a device that will fix at least 20 records in one go with like a 90% success rate.
              and it would have to be diy conform... and cheap.

              edit: operated by a robot would be an option.

                Ask on Waxidermy for someone who has a dewarping machine.

                  Try using a record clamp. Holds the records firmly onto the platter. Never tried one myself but could help and worth a punt.

                      A family member was a glazier so a few years ago I asked if they could make 2 glass two inch thick strengthened glass plates, thirteen inches in diameter with a spindle hole aligned
                      right in the middle of each one.
                      I got 'em made and was told the cost would have been around 80 quid for a normal customer to have done.
                      Said plates go in the oven on a VERY low heat for about 5 minutes, applied to my Technics SL1210 modded deck they de-warp any knackered record.
                      Cheers!

                        Presumably they are all warped in similar way (stacked badly, over time or with weight unevenly placed on them?)

                        If so, try just aligning the warps, curling upwards too, and stack them in a pile with some encylopaedias on 'em and leave them for a few weeks!

                          sounds interesting. i consider trying this.
                          what's the hole for? do you press them together with a screw?
