    The 5x7 Agfa Ansco sprung a few leaks...

    ...pin holes in the bellows, so I fixed them pronto with a can of Blue Magic Brush-On electrical tape from my local ACE hardware store.
    A piece of cake!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Question: how long did you need to wait (drying time) before you could reliably fold up the bellows?

    Mars Black acrylic works and dries fast. Carrying a small tube and brush in your case can save the day when the unexpected happens.

    One issue that can come up is this can take a very long time to set and is slightly tacky unto itself, so when closed it can stick together, so leave the bels extended for weeks to avoid trouble...
