Re: [ARSCLIST] Proper way to store 78s

----- Original Message ----- From: "Ying-fen Wang" <nanguanl@xxxxxxxxxx>
Dear List,
I wonder if any of you can advise me on the proper way to store 78s. Should
it be stored upright or horizontally?

"Upright" (side by side)...but only if the relevant milk box (or similar container)
is full, or very close thereof!

Since 78's weigh about 1/2 lb. (227 grams) each, the bottom record in a
pile of 100 discs has 50 lb. (22.7 kg) of weight on it! In fact, one can
occasionally run across 78's which have reversed record numbers
(raised on the disc on top) permanently impressed in them!
