I set my oven to the lowest it would go (170-F), but I've heard you can pump it up to 250 and be fine. I went with 10 minutes, though I've heard you can go up to 30 minutes (I also put a wood block on top and a skillet to hold it down) in the oven, then took it out, still in the glass, putting it on the counter with a couple heavy books on it until it cooled. I might try it again, slightly hotter and a few more minutes, to see if I can eliminate the warp completely.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Thanks so much to all of ya'll. Suggestions have been great and going on this vinyl trip with ya'll has been fun and it will continue to be. I love the shared enthusiasm!

Sorry I was a bit quiet after posting but I have been jamming all weekend!!! I want to hear everything. I wont lie, the speed issues people have been having with this unit has scared me, so I wanted to run it through the gauntlet of stuff. I probably put it a solid 15 hours of play this weekend. Just kicked back, read, and jammed out. So far, it is purring like a kitten. I couldn't be happier.

I haven't posted a pic on here in forever, so I don't remember how, what do I do? Id love for ya'll to see the set up!
