    Gave my folks a record player for Christmas so they could enjoy their old 78's, 45's and 33 1/3's. Now we find that some of the records, stored in the basement, have warped. Anyone have a suggestion on how to "flatten" them?

    How about a dried flower press in the oven on warm????? Two pieces of plate glass and a hair dryer???? I think your going to have to heat them to make them stay in place. That is all the ideas I have.
