  • The perils of old 78s

    Only another 150 or so to clean and examine. I have been sorely disappointed in a few cases, one or two of what would be real gems have serious defects. This batch has been poorly stored for decades. I am actually looking for something with a microscopic tip to dig a couple of pieces of something firmly embedded out of the grooves of one disc. Thank goodness it isn't the Percy Faith Orchestra or the Weavers.

    The perils of collecting antiques, hope and disappointment.

    78 rpms collectors have usually run across everything in the universe by now. Isn't there someone that has come up with a solution?

      Micro Bondo? A good micro-surgeon? I know a replaceable stylus is a requirement, MCs need not apply.
