    Glue for bellows repair

    I recently noticed that the bag part of my bag bellows is starting to detach from the rest of the bellows. What is a good glue or adhesive that will seal well and be durable enough for use?

    Glue for bellows repair

    I've used the method described in "Restoring Classic & Collectable Cameras" by Thomas Tomosy. It's essentially the same as the last post's reference, but rather than Elmers and liquid soap, he suggests glue from liquid glue stick (clear) mixed with black paint.
    The only trouble with doin' nothing is you can't tell when you get caught up
