Edison Wax Cylinder Recordings Answered

I'm not sure this is the correct category, but I didn't see one specifically for audio endeavors!

I know there were early recordings on wax, and later vinyl records, but I wondered if anyone ever went back and made cylinders from vinyl and tried recording on them. Does anyone know where I can find out more about this? I'm be interested in trying to make higher definition recording cylinders for some fun :)

There are instructables for 3d printed and laser-cut records, they might be the place to start.

I just got through reading those! They were interesting, and I'd like to have a crack at printing them myself. I wont have a 3d printer until december, but I'd like to try printing the audio file onto a 4th axis arm and seeing how it comes out.
