    Can you imagine doing that to several hundred or a thousand LP's. Buy a cleaner machine.

    I'm thinking this would get the last little piece of dust from the deepest place in the grooves. I KNOW someone here will try it.....

    Offered "as-is", no warranty express or implied. Not something I would do (well, maybe with dump-find/Goodwill vinyl as a test bed).

    On a rare LP that you want to remedy noise not related to scratches and bad mastering, this can work. I would only use it in an extreme case.

    Wood glue has some kind of "drier" in it, doesn't it ( like Japan drier in paint) ?

    That would have to have some sort of effect, and not positive, on the vinyl I would think.

    We'll wait until HearingImpaired regains consciousness to get the official verdict. :)

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.
