    These are good: LINK

    The thing I like about them is that they fit inside the existing sleeve quite easily. Some don't.

    You see I knew I didn't make sense.......

    I'm looking for a plastic cover to put the whole shebang in. Sort of to protect the album cover etc.

    Bingo.....it is them although I'll probably go for the lighter weight polythene ones as they don't split as easily.

    TY.

    M6 (like the one in the centre) has a very fine thread and the pressure I'm thinking of using would strip.

    I tried tapping M6 to see how far I could go before it stripped and it wasnt very far.
    Scott I really must apologies.

    I made the original comment in jest, having mistakenly thought that the bolts must be M16, but that must have been a trick of the scale of the photograph. The bolts looked more like something I use to stick buildings together with LOL.

    Good luck with the experiment, I do hope it works, I have plently of vinyl that would benefit from the treatment if its successful

    I have successfully de-warped vinyl records between two sheets of perspex at 55C (in a lab oven) overnight. The perspex sheets were loose, not bolted together. Too high a temperature, and you could start to lose plastisizer from the LP making it brittle, and when played, damaging the groove wall.
    cheers.....Bryan

    I've been buying from this supplier for years now and have found them to be the best covers at reasonable prices. I buy the 600g single and gatefold versions.

    How bad are the warps Scott? If they are slight it shouldn't matter as a decent arm will cope with them. If the warps are severe it's a case of asking for refunds, especially with new LPs.

    Depends. Donno a bad warp from a good warp tbh.
    It varies I guess.
    The slight ones I can live with but the biggests ones can be heard as a background noise when the needle rides down the back of the warp. Also, it just looks all wrong when watching the needle ride of the worst ones. Its like the bigger dipper out there or the waltzer, member the waltzers.

    Just read this thread.

    Very mystificating.

    None of my 2500 or so LPs are so warped they won't play, but you say you have a lot, Roksoff.

    Have you always been blessed with such bad luck?!

    Know what's important, go for it, and value it when you get it.

    Eh...um...erm....I may have cured my warped records in one fowl swoop.
    Gary was close.

    OK...I'm more than a little embarrassed to say this but the fecking platter mat had a big high spot in it.

    take the piss all you want, i deserve it for being such a mouth breathing knuckle dragging window licking numb nut.

    I do still have a couple that are slightly warped but not as many as intially thought.
    I'm sure there's a lesson to be learnt here and I'm learning it. I went months thinking "WTF is wrong wi these records".
    I'll get me coat.

    edit: this post will self destruct in one hour.

    Well at least you've made a pretty good platter mat flattener!

    I suspect that arm he has on his TT isn't the best at wave riding either

    Just think of the press as a miniature millennium dome.
