Re: [ARSCLIST] Record flattening

It provides better control of temperature and timing, parallel
plates and uniform pressure than a DIY set-up.  When working
with rare/valuable media, you want consistent results.

However, with some experimentation - and a VERY well-controlled
oven (convection is best for uniform temperature distribution)
you can accomplish something similar.  The temperatures
need to be VERY low.  We're talking very low 100s Fahrenheit.

It's audiophool stuff.  You can do the same thing with two pieces of
glass and an oven.

Anyone have experience with it?
