It's round and wobbles, but madam, it's a mouse pad, not a floppy disk

Thing is, I think I might even have seen a couple of those kicking about but didn't get what they were - if there had been several I might possibly have figured it out but the gramophone took a few records with no problem or slippage and it was unclear what the small piece of fibre-shedding cloth was for except helping to clog up the needle.

None of the records that had clearly been played/stacked in the thing were showing signs of sanding so is it possible the felt discs were an over-caution for older records?
