this is great for people in bands who just want to get a record made, or vanity projects, but yep it could be a bootlegger's dream unfortunately

wonder if it allows matrix stamping lol

Well if it works OK I might just treat myself to one ... :)

Gotta be a better bet than trying to find a complete and working Neumann lathe for less than £30,000 ... :thumbsup:

These are nothing new, Vestax used to make one, it was at the start of the carver craze, was £7k or summit like but only 7p per disc.

Big difference between £7,000 and £882 for this one ...

It was over ten years ago and "new" to the market.  I guess with proper production and advancements in tech it would be a lot cheaper to make today.  It cut what we know as vinyl carvers and I guess a few people set up with them.

ok, didn't know that. Article says 10" so I assumed it can't cut other formats.
