Thread: Custom Bellows UK Ordering Status

    Yes that's about right, it took much longer this time than my first project earlier, I suspect that is due to the Covid. Got the first shipment in like four days.

    They're a really nice company to deal with. Luckily I can get there by car with no problems.

    I just recently got a replacement standard bellows for my Linhof Technikardan S45 from Keith. Fast turnaround of about 3 days from him receiving the old bellows/frames and me getting back the fitted new one in the post. Granted they are a stock item, but nonetheless I thought it worth mentioning to allay general doubts about delays.

    Thanks for all the positive posts, undoubtedly Covid has affected work world wide especially postage issues things seem still to be taking an age with all their backlog to deal with. We have been so busy since returning I have never seen so many what I call “special 1 off” orders in all the time I have worked there ( 40+ years ) ..... not complaining it’s great was so worried we would fold under the circumstances so thank you to everyone for your custom hope to continue for many years yet
    Cheers Keith ..

    I recently received two bellows from Keith, a Toyo 810m and a Century universal 8x10. Custom Bellows is an absolute pleasure to work with.

    Thanks Keith!

    I just received a new bellows for my Scoville Studio Camera reconstruction from Keith at Custom Bellows. The bellows were completely gone so measurements were made of the bellows frames.
    The fit is absolutely PERFECT!
    The quality, look, and feel of the bellows are exceptionally fine.
    Keith is a pleasure to work with ... super patient for all of my questions, quick response time, exceptional packaging. The packaging really made a difference as the shipper left the box at my barn ... I found it the next day under 6 inches of fresh snow.
    Even with C19 and the shipping shut down I received my bellows in about 4 weeks ... very reasonable under these circumstances.
    I will for sure order from Keith for my next bellows project.

    Next I want Keith to manufacture a custom Sinar Norma extra long 5x7 bellows. They made bellows for Sinar back in the Norma days.

    My new Technika bellows arrived this morning.

    Paid for on Monday evening, here in Ireland on Friday.

    Keith was a pleasure to deal with and the bellows are lovely.

    Very pleased I went this way to get my camera rebuilt for the summer.

    I decided to go with Custom Bellows UK for a replacement for my Seneca 8x10. I mailed off my old frames on April 23, from central NY. I just received the email and invoice from him today telling me it is finished and ready to ship out tomorrow. Good turnaround time for an international thing like this. The frames got to them very quickly, despite my using the cheapest First Class shipping, so hopefully the bellows will arrive quickly as well. Very satisfied with the excellent service and communication.
