I saw an original Edison phonograph in an antique shop a couple years back for $400. It was in kinda bad shape but still very nice. I'm still kicking myself for not buying that.

Then take it and drag it with a VERY slight amount of pressure along the groove right where the skip is. This will cause it to make a pop noise, but at least the album will play through.

I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU KILL YOUR ALBUMS!!!

IDK if I'm the only person here who even listens to them anymore but whatever... if you have any, this is how to make them work again.
An exacto knife works well too.

I might even have the old record they gave out at McDonalds wayyyyy back in the day for the song about the big mac. "2 all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a seame seed bun"......LOL

Yeah, it was some sort of contest where you had to learn the song and then sing it and you win who knows what. But they gave out records so people could learn the song!

I'll have to see if I can dig it up, it should be with all the other records and the record player.

Oh, I found another way to fix them. You can also use a really old (as in metal needle) record player, and let it play right where the skip is. Only at the skip, as it degrades 33 RPM albums horribly. This way, you don't end up with a pop.
