    I've been looking for a method by which I can straighten the tabs that hold the rear frame and bellows secure in Kodak Folding cameras. I tried using a slot screwdriver but I either end up ripping the bellows or breaking off the tabs. Also does anyone know how the rear portion of Zeiss folder bellows are attached to the rear of the camera?

    Thanks in advance,

    Carefully, with pliers. You don't want anything sharp near the bellows.
    I think Zeiss Ikons use glue, at least mine seems to.
