I dug out this giant magnifying glass I have in my modeling toolbox in the garage and looked at the area where it skipped and there's this really tiny little dimple like a moon crater or road pothole that's about the width of three grooves wide. I'm sure anything I'd try to do to fix it would only make it worse. Shit like this reminds me why I stopped buying vinyl at the end of the 80's for just about all my music purchases.

That would be a pressing mistake.

Maybe you can send it back to the pressing plant :)

For skips, caused by a scratch, you can try 'evening' the groove with a tooth pick. Don't try it with a sharp object like a knife, you'll only ruin your record more
