Lenny - I think it depends on what is causing it. Sometimes it is caused by the spindle hole not being perfectly centered when the record was manufactured. There are some models of turntables that have a removable spindle which would enable one to attempt to center the record - though I cannot imagine that would be easy. And there may be occasions when one can remove it by trying different sized styli - again, it depends on what is causing it.

Older 'el-cheapo' style turntables driven by a small diameter spindle and an intermediate rubber pinch wheel between the spindle and the inside diameter of the platen were bad for producing wow. The solution was to get a better turntable smile.gif
