LP thicknesses...

Hi, Batman,

The outer lip of many LPs can be 4mm thick but the lip doesn't ride on the platter or platter mat so doesn't affect record height.

For reference, I found that LP thicknesses range from 0.80mm to 2.20mm and the majority of "non-audiophile" LPs are 1.0mm to 1.2mm thick. That's based on measuring hundreds of LP records with a thickness gauge.
