STABLE 33.33 Vinyl Center Hole Reamer

It’s an annoying problem that every vinyl lover has probably been confronted with: the centre hole of a record is simply too small. Solutions such as the new STABLE 33.33 Vinyl Center Hole Reamer are designed to solve this problem.

The new STABLE 33.33 Vinyl Center Hole Reamer is a simple solution to a problem that every vinyl lover has encountered: the record simply does not fit on the platter of the record player because the so-called centre hole in the centre is not optimally designed and the diameter is too small.

In many cases, it cannot be said that it does not fit at all, but rather that some records can only be placed correctly with the appropriate pressure, which is by no means ideal when the record is removed again, since this would of course only work with the appropriate amount of force.

Just a touch too small…

Usually it is just a touch too much material that leads to this problem, or simply poor deburring during the production process. Individual small plastic parts that ultimately have a comparatively large effect.

Of course, one could help with a Stanley knife or even a standard drill, but this is a very fiddly and not really accurate solution to the problem.

Especially since the market offers suitable tools, such as the latest solution from the Canadian company Stable 33.33, which is offered by IDC Klaassen International Distribution & Consulting oHG.

The new STABLE 33.33 Vinyl Center Hole Reamer is a tool optimised for exactly this outlined task and is particularly easy to handle.

It consists of two parts, a lower part for safe storage and the upper part, which contains the actual cutting tool.

So, to re-cut the centring hole of a record correctly, all you have to do is to place the cutting tool first on one side, and in the worst case also on the opposite side of the record’s hole, and remove excess material with one or two turns. The whole thing fits.

It couldn’t be simpler to re-cut, and this solution offers the great advantage that the diameter of the centring hole then actually corresponds to the specifications and is not too large. If unsuitable tools are used, there is a risk that too much will be removed and correct centring will not be guaranteed.

The new STABLE 33.33 Vinyl Center Hole Reamer is now available for € 79,-.

Small problem, big effect, that’s how you could describe the tiresome story of too small centre holes on records. The new STABLE 33.33 Vinyl Center Hole Reamer from the Canadian company STABLE 33.33 can also be described as a small, simple tool with enormous benefits, because it solves the problem in a few easy steps and with the corresponding precision.
