Description

These Styro-Phone Re-Writeable Dictation blanks are made from recycled #6 plastic coffee lids collected from our partner network. They are washed, shredded, and heated at 465 degrees Fahrenheit and injection molded into a disc mold. Styro-Phones are intended as a more sustainable alternative to the dollar store plastic plates known in record lathe cutting circles. Styro-Phones are approximately 1/8″ thick and can be erased numerous times with high grit sandpaper. All Styro-Phones are entirely unique and have a similar noise floor to picnic plates. They are available in several splatter patterns. Swarth should come off in one strand!

This listing is intended for lathe cutters only but if you want to put a blank one on display we certainly won’t say no!

PLEASE NOTE: These are exactly 7 inches, we are in the process of acquiring a 6 7/8″ mold.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR CALIBRATION ON PRESTO 6N/8N LATHES

1. Acquire a dollar store picnic plate and a cutting stylus. We recommend a sapphire cutting stylus (not embossing, it must be the plough shaped cutter)

2. Place a Styro-Phone Dictation blank on your lathe and lay the picnic plate on top.

3. Set the needle weight to 40 grams.

4. Ensure that swarth is removed in one piece from the plate. Adjust weight as needed.

5. Place the picnic plate under the Styro-Phone. The Styro-Phone should now be under the optimal needle weight.

6. Adjust weight as needed until swarth comes off in one strand.
