    Definately needs some padding bro.

    Q-berts method is a glass bowl on top of the record and leave it in the sun lol.

    I don't scratch with my vinyl because I'm afraid to scratch them, doesn't this device scratch your plates?

    We've been through this.
    Nothing fixes warped records.
    Whatever straightens it out compromises the sound quality by distorting the shape of the grooves.

    Have a warped record? Deal with it or bag a new one.

    Not strictly true, fair enough they may not be perfect like they used to be but you can definitely make an unplayable record playable again. Ive done it. If I remember correctly, you argued against it then aswell.
    Just coz a record is warped so you cant cue it for example doesnt mean it should be thrown away or turned into a bowl or some shit, at least try and repair it so it can be played.

    yeah. better to have a playable record in degraded quality than no record at all.
