Maintaining a Leather Bellowsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
I have been suprised that there have been no answers to the question about bellows maintenance. I will ask it again, and hopefully someone will respond: how about it? anybody have any ideas re: bellows maintenance?

Lexol leather conditioner is a product that has been recommended from time to time. Never use neat's Foot Oil as it can dissolve the glue binding the bellows together. Ditto anything with Silicon, sprays, Armor-All, etc. Try a leather goods store like Tandys and read the labels on all the products. Also, you could contact Ron Wisner at his website and get his input.
