So You Thought You’ve Pirated Everything Huh?

Just because vinyl records are analog, it doesn't mean you can't pirate them. All you need:

  • A Wood Box
  • Glass
  • Window Cement
  • Silicone Mixture
  • Liquid Plastic
  • A Drill Press

Yeah I know, that doesn't sound easy. Well not all piracy is fun and games.


But if you have some free time to kill. He is a quick run down:

Step 1: Make a box out of wooden strips around a glass plate. Make sure everything is air tight by sealing off the edges using window cement.

Step 2: With the side of the record facing upward, place the record inside the box. Put some window cement where the whole in record is located.

Step 3: Mix the silicone (use smooth on OOMOO 30 or OOMOO 25) for a good 3 minutes before placing into your mold.

Step 4: Pour! Try to start from one corner and let it fill-up the mold. Half a centimeter should be good, but make sure it's even. Now let it dry for 6 hours.

Step 5: Carefully peel the silicone from the cast. Use a cutter to remove the excess.

Step 6: Pour the liquid plastic on top of the silicon cast.

Step 7: You can brush off air bubble you may see, but make sure nothing spills over the round form.

Step 8: Very carefully loosen the plate from the silicone form. Now here is the fun part; using a drill press, bore a hole through the center of the plate. You can also use the silicone form as template make more copies.


You have your very own pirated record.
