The guy coats a record in glue, waits for it to set, then peels it off. Apparently it works very well. I'm not sure how it compares to other techniques, so I figured I'd run it by you guys and see what you think.

1. Attack the argument, not the arguer.
2. Assume good faith.

There was a commercial record cleaner that used a similar concept... I don't remember the name, but it came in a bottle with a sponge applicator attached to the top. I believe the substance was water-based and it was rubbery when dry (kind-of like rubber cement). It wasn't too sticky or strong so it was easy to remove and it didn't damage the label if you happen to get some on it. IIRC, the drying time was not as long as his glue.

I liked the product! But it was never that popular, and it dissapeared from the market (before vinyl "dissapeared".)

I also remember reading about people making something similar "at home" (with gelatin, I think).
