The Secret Society of Lathe Trolls banner

Founded in June, 2005, by Steve Espinola, The Secret Society of Lathe Trolls is a chat forum and, recently, a blog, devoted to “record-cutting deviants, renegades, professionals & experimenters.” By a combination of accident and passionate obsession, it has become the #1 worldwide online resource for those looking to buy, sell, repair or innovate in any technology related to record cutting or record pressing. It is equally hospitable to crazed artists (its initial target population) and industry professionals. With the addition of the public-minded blog, it is our hope is that the site will also appeal to less-technically-obsessed vinyl fanatics.

The site currently averages 1,040,000 page views per year. Visit to join the fun. Contact Steve to advertise.
