Nice to see some here with proof it does not hurt records,or leave residue like Discwasher does, Roger ________________________________ From: Robin Hendrickson <[log in to unmask]> To: [log in to unmask] Sent: Sunday, September 9, 2012 7:57 AM Subject: [ARSCLIST] Before & After images of LP cleaned with Wood Glue Here's a new thread for this topic. I have tested this a few times and I took some photos, you can see for yourself. (I'm not a pro photographer.) Disclaimer: The test record pictured here is not a throwaway but rather a sadly beat-up and completely filthy specimen. After cleaning, I played it a bunch and was able to enjoy an improvement from the reduced crud and distracting noise. No more crud at all. But the glue won't do a thing for the scratches. ;) before: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/820/dscf4147eh.jpg/ http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/138/dscf4148.jpg/ http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/823/dscf4149a.jpg/ http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/402/dscf4150v.jpg/ during: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/507/dscf4151x.jpg/ http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/708/dscf4152fy.jpg/ after: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/502/dscf4153i.jpg/ http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/21/dscf4154p.jpg/ http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/254/dscf4155z.jpg/ http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/443/dscf4156.jpg/ Pros: Really seems to restore a brand-new surface. Unscientifically speaking, of course.. Cons: Takes a long time. (24 hours.) I filled one of those squeezable cosmetics bottles with wood glue, the kind with a fine nozzle. I used a junker turntable as a lazy susan. It requires a lot of glue, you need a solid dried pancake on there in order to peel it off easily. The resulting negative is so finely-detailed it looks you could play the thing. I haven't tried. I have 2 copies of Disney's "Peter and the Wolf" narrated by Sterling Holloway. Both have been abused by kids for years and it showed. I cleaned one with glue and there was a noticeable improvement (my 3-year old seemed to agree.) Though pops and clicks remain, the constant crackle of static-y fuzz is gone.
