Yeah, but you gotta wonder why!

No wonder those things make a noise.

The picture makes me wonder if vinyl would sound better if you lubricate the groove with oil!

Yes you can....and at the same time ruins your cart.

I used Armor All as a desperate / last measure once and all surface noise disappeared. The cart at that point simply could not be kept clean for even one side of the disc.

Petrol based oil may act as a solvent? It may also be possible to *build some lubricity INTO* the vinyl at compounding. Any lube would have to be able to take whatever temp was needed to liquify for pressing. Silicon oil might work....or simply gum up the works. Over in the thread on phono preamps, Jan indicated that silicon oil has fallen out of favor for cue arm use.

In the pic at the start of the thread, is that a NEW disk or has it been spun and if so about how many times......

Of course its new.
If it was old and well played, you could see the grooves from the other side

Good SEM work.
Is there a top view available?
How about a compar-o with a well played disc?
