Rusty, sorry it's taken me so long to respond, but no they weren't thin records. It was incredibly bent and I doubt anything would've fixed it. I'd like to know how it got that way to be honest!

Remi, you should try it and let us know which method worked best for you. Just start with the records that you care the least about. I had a lot of fun doing it.

Is anyone considering groove distortion? I see a lot of tips on how to flatten a warped vinyl, but when the vinyl itself is warped, so are the grooves. When it gets flattened, do the grooves just pop back into place like nothing has happened?

Hi, A good question. I don't know. If the fixing process makes the LP out of round that will cause problems as the sound will waver and many cartridges might have problems following the groves.

Good Listening

It's definitely not perfect, but it's a matter of losing one or two songs rather than the whole record. You take what you can get. It might work better in one of those machines that are designed for this issue.
