What I saw with my stereo microscope

Nothing. I saw nothing that looked like a flaw in a groove. I was looking right at the section that caused the skips and turned the record a full 360 degrees. I saw a couple of white threads in a groove but these moved very easily when I touched them with a toothpick. They would have been kicked out of the way by the stylus. I expected to see either a damaged groove or some sort of blockage to the groove. Nothing I saw looked like either.

I used 16X magnification which made the grooves quite large and easy to see. So the mystery continues.
