    Works great. I find that business cards work best for spreading the glue. If you are going to doa bunch, make sure that you have the space to store them for 24 hours and make sure that you put them on wax paper. I also have a writeup with pictures under the vinyl/CD section of this forum.

    Yeah? Lol

    When the wood glue dries, it turns into a hardened sheet that is easy to peel off of the record. The only time that I've f'ed up a record is when I brushed the glue up onto the label and peeled it off a bit off.
    I've never heard such clarity from records that I used to play with in the late 80's. Ever.
    Do it. But be careful not to touch the labels.

    If you want, add a drop of baby oil to a mixture of water and brush it on to clean, remove static and to lubricate the needle.
