I bought a bunch of records at a yard sale. Most are in decent shape, but a couple are severely warped. I've checked around and saw the tip about heating them up in the oven between two pieces of glass in order to flatten them back out. However, these records are bent to the point that I fear putting them between anything that heavy will cause them to snap. Should I try heating them up in the oven on a pane of glass with nothing on top at first. Then pull them out and place a lightweight book on top. Then gradually add heavier books as time goes? Are they a lost cause?
