Heating iron?[/quote]


I would think that using a heating iron would warp it even more.

I wouldn't use heating iron no thanks.

I asked a record dealer about unwarping lp's he's tried this a few times.

Put the Lp between 2 pieces of glass and tried to heat them with an iron. Didn't work.
He put a an Lp under a wooden box full of records that was on a wooden table,left it there for 5 months. Didn't work.

There are de-warping machines out there. I've heard that they work on lp's but not 45's,and are expensive.

I am aware of the record flattening machines I agree there expensive. The only cheap record flattening mahcine that I know of that's priced under $100.00 is the vinyl flat that's made here domestically.

I tried this with a 12" 45 rpm single that had a very small but wicked edge warp. I was able to push down and flatten the warp to the point that the record would play without the stylus hopping. Still a bit of groove damage to that area of the record but at least I could play it.

Proceed with caution, it's real easy to totally screw up a record with too much heat.
