Ok, so I order some Ballistol to clean my guns and I get reading the uses......wow! You can apparently use this stuff for all kinds of crazy things!

Take a look at the last paragraph in this link. WTF?  https://ballistol.com/uses/plastics-rubber/

So, I just got back out "The Room of Technology" with an absolutely horrible copy of Bad Company. Insane surface noise but otherwise not too bad.

I am just now shutting it off and am going to treat it with Ballistol. No cleaning just the oil.

Back in a few.it's 10:50 Thurs. night. 5/30/2019

If it makes this record quieter and does not kill the stylus or record over time it will be amazing. Stay tuned.

Me too tea-man.  I wondered if the antique substrates would react as the more modern vinyl.  I have a few train wreck teenage records that could benefit.

How do you remove the oil from the record to play it?

Still on going.....letting it sit to see what happens later. No bad effects so far but little noise reduction.

Steve, don't know you can.....a little goes a loooong way.
