Broken Record

Posted (edited)

I bought a record at the Dome. :thumbsup:

Half an hour later it was cracked. :thumbsup:

A few minutes after that while seeing how cracked it was. It snapped in two :angry:

I now that some people recommend sticking razor blades to the back of cracked records, which apparently works well and gives added strength.

So this is what I did. I don't know how other people get on with this but it does raise the record somewhat off the decks and the record does list, to say the least, as it goes around. But if you have a decent enough deck and change the weight of the arm all is ok. :thumbsup:

Another 40 year old 45 saved :thumbsup:

BTW gonna sell it on now - cant be bothered changing my deck arm all the time so-

LaBrenda Ben - Chaperone - Gordy - £50.00 VG- but fine for DJing! :thumbsup:

This it fixed

a good point. Thats £50 for the both!! Good deal eh!?

The lot will not be split.

No personal cheques, no paypay, no bidpay, no timewasters.

cash only, or will do trades for one 60s northern 45 that has to be worth at least £100.

Be quick and not disappointed. Once its gone, its gone

BTW a bit of soul history - this was cracked during the last record ever spun by the CSC at the Dome. Priceless. And I can guarantee you will not see find this 45 in this condition again.

Mark, to you £45 :lol:

You get with that 2 blades and a nice vinyl handle with a large centre hole for extra grip and comfort. Styled in Black and maroon from the fashion centre of the world in Detroit...

...yes folks we give you the "Gordy Groovy Razor"© - for the discerning gentleman, or very hairy woman.

Does it come with any warranty? 12 months cover should be enough to make me want to buy! shades.gif

I'm very tempted as it does appear to be "the best a man can get".

Sorry couldn't resist the that! :thumbup:
