      I have some of these, they are really hard to put in and harder to take out! LOL! (At least I have trouble with them!)

      Yes my friend, around that age. They switched to plastic to ease on the wear they would cause to the inner edge of the inner hole.
      It is best to use a spindle that stays put on the turntable rather than insert a spindle onto each disc. I would definitely hang on to these!!

      The site above will be most helpful. If you cannot locate it, just type in Webster Chicago Corporation into Google search and it will pop up.
      Several of these on e-bay as well.

      I also meant to mention another reason for the short use of the metal kind. When inserting or taking one out of a disc, can cause breakage as well, chipping around inner hole. Record no good then.
      Aluminum was used due to it not being a magnetic metal, of which could cause a issue with the device your using, turntable.
      Sort of like this..Youve seen a Television before I'm sure that would begin to show these colors at the corner of the screen?? Mostly a green or yellow?? Alot of times that is due to stereo speakers being too close to TV. The speakers have a magnet within them, drawing away from the metal components inside the Television, Again causing the above mentioned issue..If this makes any sense?? Lol!!

      Brunswick, Makes sense to me. Some older computer monitors had to be periodically degaussed manually. };-)



      Evolution and Extinction: Webster-Chicago 45 RPM Adapters
      Posted on October 17, 2013 by Andrew Hansbrough

      "The Webster"Throughout 2012 and 2013, one of Marr’s ongoing projects consisted of combing through our 45 RPM record collection and preparing them for long-term Roobot Storage. The procedure called for sleeve replacement, deletion of triplicate copies, some basic data entry, the exceedingly rewarding process of making and printing labels for storage boxes, as well as mass removal of 45 RPM adapters.

      As an employee of a sound archive, I, of course, love to perform these menial chores and often feel empty inside when I am not completing such rewarding tasks. Our staff and student assistants would agree! However, if there was one thing that could send me into a full-on emotional tailspin, it would be the anxiety that comes with removing Webster-Chicago Corporation brand 45 adapters and their insidious presence from our 45 RPM holdings.

      If I wasn’t shredding my fingers to pop these bad boys out, I might be warping the 45 or even snapping it in half. Once in a blue moon, I wake up to a cold sweat at 4 am, obsessing over “Websters” in my nightmares. No joke. More often than not, I would break down and run to my supervisor, Charlie Stout, who would remove them for me, seemingly without any detriment to his person or psyche. Go figure…

      So that is a mold cavity number? Now I don`t feel so bad knowing I am not alone in trying to remove these things!! LOL! I learned my lesson, from now on mine are just for show!

      Love all the info on these Devil's Workshop adapters!!! I know now where I'll use them!!! I'll give them as ball markers to my golfing friends!!! My game might not get better!!! but it may take away their "EDGE" when putting on the holes!!!
      Many Thanks!!!
