    I agree. But again, where wood glue is tedious and can get expensive, US is either very expensive or a DIY hassle (for me anyway) and even the DIY solutions are "pricey" for DIY.

    The only thing that might change my mind about US vs Spin Clean would be a vast improvement over a Spin Clean. To be clear, I'm not talking about US cleaning better than Spin Clean... we all know it does! I'm talking about taking a record that's been through a Spin Clean cleaning and listening to it, then putting it through US cleaning and going "Holy shit! That's so much better now!"

    Now that's something that is worth the extra money! (IMO) But I have not had that happen yet.

    But yet again.... when I finally have the "last" system in place with a great turntable like a Yamaha GT 2000 and some crazy MC cart hooked up to an even crazier phono stage and so on... then I'll probably have that Aha! moment with US. The system I have now and my ears can't tell the difference.

    I did a few LPs for a fellow AKer and he wrote a (praise) review. This was after considerable effort on his own. If I can find the thread I will link it.

    That would be fun. I hope in the future I have the opportunity to visit someone with an US and take my Spin Clean to do "after Spin Clean" comparisons.

    Yes I did put a fair coating on,in truth the record in question had an unknown history so it could have been unsalvageable.

    What if you bought stampers and then used wood glue? Will you get an LP?

    Well I did this for the first time the other night using Tightbond (the red bottle, not Titebone II). I can't get it off. It's very rigid and just cracks and crumbles, so I am afraid picking at it will cause it to scratch the vinyl.

    Any ideas for removal? If I do a layer of Tightbond II over it, will that help it peel? Warm water? I'm at a loss.

    Cool water to wash it off.

    Will that soften it? I would say the record is still 80-90% covered in the stuff at this point.

    I would give it a try on a small section and see what happens.

    An alterntive, but risky move is to flex the record to see if the glue "pops" off. But as you can imagine, that might also just crack the record.

    put a couple of strips of masking tape on the edge and then re coat with a layer of glue all over,use the tape to peel it off.

    I have used wood glue methods before for real dirty grimy records , but only after other methods did not work . Use the tight bond II over the other glue. But don't wait too long. after a few hours or till it gets that clear look is all it needs.

    I take it you waited over night or longer.
