If there is that much exasperation something else is going on? How many dirty records Versus perfect ones do you have? Could it be a misalignment or even broken stylus?

I have many records that sound awesome, some that sound ok and some that sound horrible. The ones that sound really bad are all old mono records from the 60's which could be part of the problem.

Since the tip is often made with a diamond, could it simply grind the spiral. Such a way that it cannot be restored anymore. Also Vinyl is sensible to UV and heat\cold. It Might only be aging? The Same way you move you hand on your aged wife's skin?

I have done test with an old record. Using the Tergitol solution without rinsing leaves visible stains but I wasn't able to hear any suspicious noises or artifacts.
Does anyone know the correct way to dispose of Tergitol after cleaning records? Can this be dumped down the drain?
