Mass Drying

Monday, July 7, 2008

We try to utilize the entire drying rack daily. The records are hung staggered with the covers, which allows air to pass around them all. We set up a few fans around the room, not directly on the rack, as it caused some of the covers to fall, but just to move the air. It is hot and muggy outside, but we have air conditioning in the room, which also helps with drying–and makes it more comfortable in the respirators. About one length of the rack can hold twenty records, and there are usually around 55 records in a box. This means we can finish four boxes in a day. The next morning, we come and take it all down, in order, and start again.
