By the way... "patina" on felt is actually 100+ years of grease, dust, cigarette smoke, mouse droppings and assorted misc. grime... :shock: So, in my opinion a clean felt is a good felt...

Plus it comes into direct contact with your record grooves...

Once the felt is cleaned or replaced, I actually keep junk records on all of my machines to keep new dust off of the felt.

I learned that lesson when I washed a 10" felt and it turned into an 8" one... :( :lol:

Ditto... And it also became oval in shape... :shock:
