    Best Glue for refitting Bellows

    I am refurbishing a Horsemen HD 5x4, and need to know what is the best glue to use, to refit the new bellows!

    As I am in Australia, we may not have the same brands so info about type of Glue would be very helpful.

    TIA

    Hello from France,
    I hope this can help you:
    If you have to reattach just parts, use a contact glue.It 's neoprene glue.
    Glued on both sides, allow to dry and put in contact.
    Good luck
    My best

    Contact cement works great. Before applying the glue, make a simple jig for aligning the dried surfaces. Dried contact cement surfaces meeting together are non-repositional. Good luck.

    Excellent idea, speaking as one who has glued hundreds of bellows to the plastic bellows frames on Zone VI cameras in the way-back-when.

    I got street cred when it comes to gluing bellows. And Richard Ritter made me just such a jig for aligning. He got more street cred than me.
