- Question for the vinyl aficionados.

Al – I try to stay well away from all that hi-fi voodoo bollocks! Makes the wheel size threads here look sensible.
Rinsing with distilled water makes sense, it avoids lime scale being left behind from water droplets if the water is hard.
Wood glue? My records are all pointing North, is that ok?
Yep, PVA Adhesive, spread across the record like making a crépe, allowed to dry, then just peeled off. It’ll lift dust out of the grooves. Washing cleans off contamination caused by fungus which grows from specks of organic material when the record is stored against an outer wall that gets slightly cold and damp.Posted 4 years ago
What it can’t do, though, is get rid of noise from groove damage caused by worn sylii, mis-tracking, mis-aligned cartridge, etc.
It only needs to be played once with the alignment out for damage to be caused to the groove wall.
The time I’ve spent with tracking gauges, alignment gauges, balance scales, etc…
Or really badly pressed records. Which was why I bought my first CD, in 1982, after taking an album back five times because of the crap pressing; continual loud, intrusive crackling right through the album, made it impossible to enjoy listening to the music.
Of course, just sticking a penny on the tone arm might be all you need.
