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.

Perhaps David (2Bdecided) is being misled by the fact that PVA glue mixes easily with water resulting in a thinner consistency. But it's not dissolving - PVA glue is an emulsion with water, and when it dries, the remaining pure PVA is indeed waterproof. (That's why furniture doesn't fall apart if it gets wet :-)

Back to the original thread subject: I tried the "PVA film" trick many years back, but (probably due to my incompetence in application) found that it would nearly always tear into small strips when attempting the "peel". I gave up and bought a Moth vacuum machine.
