    Can someone recommend what to use as a type of bookend to hold LPs standing vertically with minimal pressure on the first and last LP? Just set up a Salamander Twin 30 and put my LPs on the bottom shelves. They don't quite fill it completely and they are not standing upright. I figure this can lead to stress on the ones on the ends with more weight leaning against them.

    Depending on how much space you have to fill, you can get some 3/4-inch-thick plywoood cut into 12-inch squares, paint or stain it to match, and use that as fillers and as ends. Just remove one square at a time as you add more LPs to the collection to keep everything vertical without too much pressure and you'll be fine. I used to use the plywood trick all the time with my LPs and LaserDiscs and it works well.
