Old_Zircon I'm pretty skeptical of cleaning it with wood glue but I'm definitely going to try it on some worthless disco singles I've been meaning to get rid of.
I wonder how many plays a wood glue record has before it's destroyed. I'd guess something like 10.
Oscar Wildcat It does in fact work to clean all the junk out of the deepest grooves in the vinyl. There is expensive crap you can buy to do this, but it's really not much better.
I've had a lot of luck lowering the surface noise and improving popping and whatnot by wetting the record before playing. I would do this when I ripped the vinyl, and it helped the subsequent processing into a CD greatly.
M-DEEM For anyone thinking of trying wood glue cleaning, I've been warned against doing it on 78s. I'm guessing the glue may bond whatever those were made of.
