There are several protective finishes available for copper e.g. Copperfield, Everbright. Caswell sells a coating for raw aluminum called “Sharkhide”. They’re all insanely expensive.

I am a big fan of heavy platters what you use to get there is sometimes a voicing thing to your taste and system. I have a big chuck of delrin, will lead load the crap out of it. That should get the weight where I want it. Then I will listen.

Enjoy the ride

"Stainless is more magnetic that you think"

If it's TRUE Stainless Steel, it is NOT magnetic. A magnet will just fall right off. Only Stainless Steel with some iron properties in it will be magnetic and that is NOT Stainless Steel.

You might do a Google search to answer your question about true stainless steel. Both 303 and 304 are a little magnetic. These are very common and called stainless steel. So for anyone who wants use stainless in their platter get your magnet out when buying the stainless steel.

Enjoy the ride

I don't need to do a google search, I used to work for a metal mart where we used magnets to sort out the "True" Stainless Steel from the dirty or the so called stainless steel that had iron properties. The problem is that the term stainless steel is being used for stuff that looked like true stainless steel but wasn't. Anyways, you are correct about using the magnet to find true stainless steel.

400 series stainless is magnetic. Cold worked 300 series can become magnetic. If non-magnetic properties are important to you, more specification than "stainless steel" is needed.
