Re: [ARSCLIST] Re-Grooving Records?

Along these lines, many years ago there were dealers in England and perhaps elsewhere who would wax records to hide the wear they otherwise displayed. It was difficult to remove and one was very reluctant to buy anything else from the dealer. The record one purchased would be worth a great deal less than the dealer had received for it. Most dealers recognized that what they were selling was bought for considerable sums of money sight unseen and that the people who collected records, especially rarities, were active in the market for many years.

Perhaps someone else could explain what this re-grooving process is. What other than cleaning do they do to CDs? CDs can simply be duplicated without loss.

Oh, I'm not the seller... I happen to be on the mailing list for a record auction list and these "Re-Grooved" records pop up on his list from time to time... I was just curious as to how the process works... maybe the next auction list I will bid on one that has been regrooved to see for myself if the process is any good... it would be great if someone would eventually come up with a process to re-surface records like they do with CDs.
