    Oh, Dave, I'm pretty sure you're going to jail. I'm blown away by that sound quality–amazing! But, yeah, you're definitely going to jail for this – ha! Seriously, though, keep it up. I love that you're "breaking out of your mold" of only woodworking. Can't wait to see what's in store!

    The loud music made watching this almost intolerable.

    Just don't do this in Reno or he'll shoot you just to watch you die. True story. (not really)

    Have you tried the method of using a standard PVA to clean vinyl? Basically, slap it on thick enough to peel it off once cured, and you are done. If you do this before your casting I reckon you would have an even better result. I have a load of the spinny plastic and can't do all of mine, but I had one area of a tune that must have been shit on by moths or something, but it cleared it up no end. Cool vid.

    How would you rate the quality of the copy compared to the original record?

    More experiments, more I say. I like how your brain works.

  10. Right. How do I make that?

    I bet your wife was happy to see you NOT use the mason jars this time.

    Oomoo doesn't hold as much detail as Mold Max 14NV. I'll bet you will get a cleaner reproduction with Mold Max.

    Oh, and level your mold base before you pour your urethane.

    what would happen if you played the silicone on the player. Of course not the silicone but if you were to use plastic instead of silicone to make a mold and played that. I wonder what it would sound like.

    As much as i enjoy the idea of reproducing records in my collection, this could hardly be something one can call "Piracy". Especially when the actual act of Piracy involves plundering a business for their property.

    Pretty cool! You might like the latest episode of 99% Invisible podcast. Episode 194: Bone Music is about Russians bootlegging Western music by using old medical x-rays to circumvent government censorship. Just go to 99percentinvisible dot org this particular episode is only 14 minutes long.

    Just about the most perfect sound track to any video I have ever watched. Awesome project too by the way. I love that you are pushing into new materials.

    You are the total package! I love how the video encompasses the story the project and the extras on your web site blend it all together. Using YouTube to guide us to your website! This is modern maker 101!

    Hot glue is a good alternative to sealant as you can easily remove it with alcohol for reuse etc.

    i wonder how much this would benefit from placing the form in a vacuum chamber after pouring.
