Titebond II is what I normally use.

Aileene's is available in the craft section at Wal-Mart.

Keep 'em around, even though I have a VPI RCM I still resort to glue for LPs that are still noisy after RCM. It can incrementally help over a RCM cleaning, depending on cause of noise.

Right.

Sometimes you need both.

Yeah, I've slipped over to using Titebond II as my "go to" choice. It does peel off easier than original formula Titebond - so this for me is an ease of use issue. A few pages back an AKer discovered that Titebond "Extend" actually self-peels as it dries - a real boon to the process. Haven't been able to find it locally in the North, but it's readily available in Southern states where longer set-up time for actual wood glueing projects is desired. I've been a slacker in not ordering a pint to try with an A/B (side 1 / side 2) test to confirm that it cleans just as well as Titebond I/II.

I hardly ever make it to Wal-Mart. The closest one to me is fortunately a bit of a drive.

Wonder it would work on my old copy of "Sticky Fingers"? Or "Stuck On You"?

Got a Michael's or a Hobby Lobby handy? Both should have it.

Yup. I'll be passing a Michael's tomorrow afternoon. I'll stop in.

OOoops, here is the link somehow I didn't get it posted.

After only audioquest brush and pad and D4+ fluid:

After Aleene's Tacky Glue:

The missing link: Only this last link had any sort of click and pop removal by computer.

So a "crafts" store is going to be a better place to look than a hardware store right?

The hardware store sells "LePage Plastic Wood" and "LePage Carpenter's Glue" and I don't think I want to be the guinea pig here.

EDIT - looks like if I can't find any at a crafts store or Home Depot that I can just order it through Amazon.com

If you can see "PVA" or "Poly vinyl acetate" in the sticker with the composition or description, then you will be fine.

I have found that the "fast setting" carpenter's glue is somewhat better in taking off (creates a thicker film at the edges) seems finer when applying in the grooves, sets faster (as advertised) and seems to remove a bit more grit. This last part is highly subjective and difficult to prove as avery LP is a different one in terms of grit quality, quantity and ageing.

Yes, you can get Aleene's at a craft store or at any type of fabric store, and most likely at any big store that has departments like those (walmart, kmart, meijer's, hobby lobby, michael's, etc.)

At Joann Fabrics, a gallon for $21 plus shipping (you can get the same deal on Amazon): http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog.j...PRODID=prd1784

ok I will play. I just glued up two "hard case" 45s. I had subjected both to my regular cleaning process, and wanted to see if this would take them a step further.

Sometimes it is hard for me to tell if the noise is from scuffs and scratches or groove gunk.

Both these 45s are from a big lot of soul and gospel that I bought in july, most of these have cleaned up reall well, but these two need an extra push. The Kansas City Melodyaires has so much surface noise that even by my standards it is hard to listen to. The Chuck Jackson starts out sounding great but gets worser and worser, making me think it has some deep funk gunk.

I will peel and play on sunday and let you all know what happens.

OK, I'm in.

Titebond II on a favorite Bill Evan's Fantasy release that looks great, but sounds like Rice Krispies. I live on the edge.



Follow up tomorrow.
