    Cleaning a vinyl record with wood glue - video ...

    Post by Bob Latino on Fri Dec 28, 2012 9:15 pm

    One of my audiophile friends mentioned to me a few days ago about cleaning a dusty record with wood glue and even sent me the link to a YouTube video on how to do it. I haven't tried this yet but I do have a few older records from the 1960's that do seem to have a few "snap, crackles and pops" even after repeated cleanings. If I do try this, it will probably be on a record that is not one of my favorites in case I screw it up. If any of you do try this, let us know how it works out ? Video below ..

    Hard to say. There was a convenient screen-wipe right before the play back demo in which pretty much anything could have happened - though it does look like fun!

    I would be extremely careful using this method - you could end up in a very sticky situation! affraid

    No - This is not an April Fool's joke. I went up on Youtube and found about a dozen videos on "Cleaning your records with wood glue". Below is a two part video from another source ...

    I've seen that before, but never tried it it. It would be good if you wanted to get a good copy of the vinyl by recording it to CD. Another method I've used to get a good copy is to "wet" the whole lp with a record cleaning solution and play while wet. This is only a one time deal to get a recording of a otherwise unplayable album, because it will ruin the album somehow.

    There's a sticky in the AK Turntable forum on the method - started in 2007. I haven't tried it yet, but do have some great candidates for it.

    I read once in a museum of ancient music that drives the problem is due to loss of varnish originally have.
    One solution offered is sprayed with silicone spray. I've tried with a disc with much noise and improved by 50%, the truth nor does wonders, but can be heard.

    Has anyone tried this (link below)?

    http://www.amazon.com/IN-THE-GROOVE-RECORD-CLEANER/dp/B004MG9YYQ/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1357104060&sr=8-7&keywords=record+cleaners

    Or, perhaps even the garden variety "Schticky" as advertised on TV. Seems like those may yield a similar result to the "wood glue" method, but with a much simpler procedure.

    Best Regards,

    Cleaning with Glue

    Post by william abbott on Sat Jan 05, 2013 2:45 pm

    I have tried this. Heard about it 2 years ago. Know a guy who does it regularly to old jazz and Big Band LPs. I did it to half of one side of a 45. An improvement in pops on the clean half as the record rotated.
    --Do not use Titebond I !!! It dries crystal hard.
    --Use Titebond II or Elmers. They dry leathery.
    --When you peel it you generate a large static charge on the record which sucks the dust in the air right to it. In winter
    you can do it in a bathroom with the air steamed up to dissipate the static.
    --Do not do this to a shellac (lacquer) record, like old Edison discs.
    --Don't get it on the paper label.

    Bo Glue! (A University of Michigan joke.)
