    Question How do you secure your acrylic glazing on XL pieces?

    Help mounting an LP

    Anyone out there in Grumble-land have any good suggestions for an archival method of mounting an LP so that the vinyl protrudes partway from the case? I'd like to have enough of the record peeking out to show that it's not just an empty sleeve, but may not have enough room to pull it out far...

    Opinions Wanted One man's trash...

    They've been cleaning out the upstairs of the old building next door, a former movie theater from the 40s that now houses my workshop, and this bin of ~vintage~ trash was placed on my table today.
