    Re: "New Gear" and restoration

    I used renaissance wax instead of lacquer on the brass bits of an agfa-ansco, it gives a friendly warm glow instead of the super shiny plated instrument look. I'm not really a "better than showroom" kind of fixer upper so your mileage may vary, I feel that if something is almost a century old it won those battle scars fair and square and I'll work to preserve the character while making it a user again.

    For leather, a simple saddle soap.
