Any suggestions on this?
I got a plate whose whole was cut too big and is kind of a bitch to cue.

Cut some little strips from sticky labels and stick them round the edge of the hole until it sits sweetly on the spindle.

Old turntablist trick to stop your records jumping!

Hope that helps! 8)

if you run across this while you are somewhere playing live, tear off a bit of foil from a cigarette pack, fold it and stick it through the record hole as you place it on the spindle. works a treat!

This is a bit long but you could get some next-level wood filler or sealent n block the hole...then jus draw for the black n decker drill n carefully put a fresh hole it...actually dont do it, but thats the 1st thing that came to mind lol

Clear Scotch Tape!

Take a 1/2 strip, cover the hole > poke thru the hole with a shart pen tip or something, thus filling the space permanently! Been doing it for 10 years and haven't seen a better method TBH :)

you can buy these small circular white stickers from wh smiths and other stationers etc, stick them directly over the hole and poke a pen though. There the hole should be tighter!! lol.

Bit off topic, but what about records which have a hole that's too small? I've encountered this a few times, any ideas?

Yes, in fact even quicker than patching it...


Be careful, although I have done this literally HUNDREDS if not THOUSANDS of times and never once messed up.


I use a pair of scissors, open them up as far as you can and stick the record hole on one of the scissor blades(while holding the other blade so as to not scratch the record if god forbid you spaz out). Then just lightly spin the record on it, thus boring it out. Its essentially using the scissor as the turntable nipple

yeah, don't be putting your records near a bloody tumble drier!
two sheets of glass, warped record in between, sunny day - that'll unwarp your tune

i did that the other day, probably the 4th time i've ever bothered doing it, and put a nasty gash through the first 2 minutes of RSD - Trample :cry: :cry: :cry: it plays but the pop is louder than the music

do NOT try to fix your records when you are blazed!

even better, do it with the small blade on your trusty swiss army knife!

Using sellotape or masking tape for stickers is poor as they fall apart very soon. Hard to find records used to little sticker strips that you'd put through the spindle hole. Their lifespan is very long, and you dont need any scissors to cut them. A shop that specialises in turntablist equipment is bound to sell them.

For holes that are too small, roll up a tiny piece of sandpaper, and try very hard to keep the sand out of the grooves.

The question is, who is the fucking idiot that makes records with varying sizes of hole. Virtually all records are the wrong size.
