    Great shot DF ; My thanks to you all for the great info.
    Holga: if it was any more analog, you'd need a chisel.

    I would agree that neet will damage your bellows over the long term.
    Lexol is also good but if the bellows are old you take the risk of eating away savable areas.

    DR. JACKSONS HIDE REJUVENATOR is by far the best for old bellows. It makes them like new and protects them from further damage.

    Is "Dr. Jackson's" a Tandy product ? I've become fond of Bickmore stuff for boots and shoes...

    Might be time for an MSDS search for some of these very nice new-fangled concoctions !

    I'm not a large format shooter, but seem to remember that I once read that in the old days they used bees wax to keep the bellows soft.
