    Fake stamps

    "Inpaid" PPI - should that not read "Unpaid" surely - a spelling mistake like that on an 'official document' looks really suspicious.

    Customs charges!!

    The handling fees is a parasitic operation it really is - it's basically a legal form of extortion and I fail to see how it can cost £8 to not deliver the package, and to bung it on a shelf in a warehouse... in any case, Royal Mail are providing a service to HMRC i.e. collecting the VAT money, so why is that being passed on to the customer? Surely HMRC should be paying Royal Mail for that service... I had a very odd situation rec..

    Does this look kosher LOL

    Well that is just outright deception, fraud, whatever term fits. Vinyl records are the only example I can think of where people are so casual about deception/ sale of counterfeit goods... thinking back the days of the blokes selling perfume/ aftershave on Oxford Street and legging it when the old bill came, or people being jailed for selling counterfeit paintings.. it's a massive big deal, yet for some reason the sales platforms/ p..

    Does this look kosher LOL

    It's probably the worst effort I have seen yet of this "photocopy label" nonsense - I cannot believe ANYBODY would be fooled by this... and if they are then I'm sorry but they deserve it... You would know that is a wrongun from a hundred paces!

    Cherished record casualties

    After a few too many beers and suffering from severe butter fingers I dropped my previously NM Stratoliners on Federal and cracked it... then whilst giving Geno Washington "I'll Be Around" on ATAC a bit of a clean the day it arrived, I was perhaps being a bit over-exuberant and snapped it over my knee.... completely avoidable, and stupidity on my part! taped it up and it still plays... but it doesn't half hurt just thinking about it..

    Back cueing & damaging records

    Hello sir, I have never had any damage from cueing records, as I do it very carefully. Wind it forward VERY slowly with the headphone volume turned up loud, and at the fist slight sign of the music starting, rewind it VERY slowly back a rotation or so... It helps to have your own cartridges too (my suggestion would be conical stylus) so you can guarantee they are in good shape. And the advice about checking the tone arm weighting ..

    Back cueing & damaging records

    I'm really scratching my head about why any confusion remains about how cue burn happens - over time using a heavily weighted (I have seen people blue tac coins to headshells), heavily worn (never been replaced) styli, and dragging the record back and forth and back and forth without any regard, over the opening few seconds of the track..... it wears them out - the styrene MUCH quicker than good quality vinyl. It's like if you spe..

    Back cueing & damaging records

    Yes totally agree it's the dreaded combination of poor quality equipment, set up badly, and used incorrectly... If the tone arm is set to the correct weight, and use spherical stylus (like the Ortofon Concord ones marked with "s" rather than "e" which are the eliptical ones) this is a good start... I place the stylus on the run in, while the platter is stationary, and rotate it manually, slowly until I hear the slightest bit of sou..
