    I bought a Clipz record the other day and to my disappointment its fucking tight on the deck. How can i make the hole bigger, without ruining my record?

    Any help is welcome

    I use a round / rat-tail file.

    VERY CAREFULLY! lol

    If you don't have access to a file, a thin pencil with sandpaper wrapped around it does the trick! But once again, be very careful! And make sure you get rid of all the bits of vinyl/sandpaper before playing it!

    And for holes that are too big I use stickers from HTFR (a necessary evil) to tighten up. Although masking tape or scotch tape will also do the trick
