    Uses DC to heat a pouch. You put the record between two pieces of metal (protected by thin felt pads) that wingnut together. The metal has some weight to it and the heat (between 130-150F) along with the weight flattens the record without groove distortion.  Make sure the record is very clean (don’t want to bake anything into the grooves) and let it go. Give it some time to cool off…. Really simple. 


    Cost me about $300CDN for the flattener and groovy pouch. Shipping was $50. I’m impressed. Have a King’s X RSD that was badly warped right out of the sleeve baking right now. All 3 of those King’s X RSDs in 2021 were warped. 
    Great product
    I was expecting a B or C+ and received an A. 
    Yea, I have had one a while, and will endorse it to anyone.
    To be clear, I wasn’t intending to present the product like it is a new thing. I’m aware it’s been around for a decade or so. I read the Steve Hoffman forum discussions on it prior to purchasing as it’s no small investment with the currency exchange and shipping. 

    My original post was just a comment on how happy I was to listen to a Husker Du record that for seemingly forever had been virtually unplayable. Interestingly, folks around here have never heard of it. None of the local record shop keepers I’ve talked to in particular, and all are interested in what I think of it. 

    I took before and after vids with my smartphone to show them.  



    You would think RS owners would like it, as it may keep people from returning warped records. Which I think they take losses on.

    I got the impression why they were interested is they could purchase a unit of their own for returned items and flatten the record to sell in the used bin. Cut their losses or break even. 
    Also, they are record collectors themselves and have some they would like to flatten

    I think I returned at least 5 copies of PJ self titled reissue.  They all seemed to be warped.  Then I got the vinyl flat, problem solved 

    that album was the deciding factor for me. LP 2 packed with the large booklet I suspect was the problem

    ......me too!  My original pressings of Ten and VS. were severely warped.  So much, that I could not play them.  Slow and low is the key with the Vinyl Flat.  Both records are now playable and sound great!

    No, have the MFSL and the OG Sounds of the South. I just watched the doc "If I Leave Here Tomorrow" the other day so I am in a Skynyrd mood. So I am thinking of picking the APs for Pronounced and Second Helping up. Also, I am looking for a nice OG One More From the Road, mine is VG at best, and I love it, but want a nice pressing. Have heard the reissues aren't very good.

    This is simply a phenomenal sounding record. RKS nailed it.

    Been looking to get that.  Often I prefer the 33 to the 45x2. Particularly with a label like AP, it can be hard to tell the difference.  

    I can tell you that the 45 Rumours is better than the same 33, but that's not AP.

    This one and the Mingus x5 releases are just fantastic.

    Did you get the two,Coltrane releases that were just released by AP?  Mine arrive tomorrow I think.  Coltrane records test your system.  He blows the shit out of the high registers.
