So...how to manually correct skips or sticks on microgroove records?
I've never been able to locate visible damage on these (unlike 78's
where groove damage is usually visible). Obviously, at some point
on the disc, the stylus can follow an alternative path...but if
that path is invisible to the naked eye, how does one correct it?
