The Vinyl Flat Record Flattener is the proven, affordable way to repair vinyl record warps that eliminates all the guesswork. Until Vinyl Flat, music lovers had very limited choices for warped vinyl records:
Throw out the records
Avoid buying/selling warped records
Purchase a record flattening machine that costs thousands of dollars
Try risky DIY or “home-made” techniques involving glass and weights
that may be cheap but can easily ruin records.
Traditional DIY techniques typically fail because it is impossible to:
Obtain even pressure across the record playing surface
Determine the correct temperature that is required for the vinyl to
re-shape using off-the-shelf materials
Determine the required amount of pressure at a given temperature.
All DIY methods only touch the raised lead-in groove and raised center record label, creating a gap that inhibits record flattening.
Only the Vinyl Flat provides a precise amount of gravitational force that is uniformly applied across the record playing surface. When used with a simple, low-heat source (such as a kitchen oven or the optional Groovy Pouch), the Vinyl Flat is proven to be effective at reducing most record warps and dishes and has been tested to be safe for all vinyl records.
