I don't have my own "flatter", but some friends of mine
bought DT-01 Orb Disc Flatter and they said it worked
very fine on most of their LP records.
Here is a link to the Japanese site (original?):
Note that its price is 81,900 JPY (about 910 USD?).
I also noticed just now that there is also a better version
which can safely flattens old "flat discs" (w/o groove guards):
The price is bit higher, 126,000 JPY.
