put the warped record in between two thick pieces of glass and put some hot water in the upper glass until gets hot-warm (NOT BOILING WATER!!!). once the glass is hot put some heavy stuff on top (books, an elephant, etc...) and leave it one hour. Repeat as many times as necessary....

instead the elephant I prefer to call my mommy coming down 500km to do the job. I'd like to do everything for my beloved burzum-vinyl-darling Wink

OK guys, I want to hear some tragedies (in order to see if I am the only dumbass to ruin his treasures)!

I haven't had heat warp yet but once I received an order with a Night of the vinyl dead issue of Jag Panzer's *Chain of Command*. Well there must have been some sand or something that got into the sleeve, because when I pulled out the record I heard this unpleasant scraping noise....

Biggest idiocy of mine was slicing a homemade record mailer of mainly duct-tape up way too eagerly with the result of cutting into the jacket of "The Awakening", also on DSP. This thread is a whole DSP tragedy so far. Very Happy

There is a machine you can buy for about $2000 that will flatten warped records.

I've heard about the glass trick. A buddy of mine had a warped copy of DRI's 4 of a Kind and swears that he put it in between two pieces of glass, laid it on his porch for a while, and the record flattened out fine. Try this at your own risk though...

As far as tragedies go, I have some records where the needle on my turntable jumps off the warp in the wax like a fucking BMX bike or something. Argh!

True. The tiny grooves of the records can never be fixed. Sure you might be able to get your record flat again, but it'll never play after it's been warped by heat.

just replace "The Awakening" by "The Red In The Sky Is Ours"


I mainly have thin Brazilian records which are already fuckin warped big time without sun influence...

There are Germans (who else) who will flatten your record with this machine in return for a fee.
