    Liesegang Uni-rax II - bellows detached

    Hi all,

    My uncle cleaned out his garage and gave me an old Liesegang Uni-Rax II enlarger. The bellows is detached from the light column; it appears to have been originally attached with some kind of glue. The bellows is made from hardened cloth and the area it attaches to is smooth, painted metal. I'm looking for suggestions on what kind of glue (or other fastener) to use for reattaching the bellows to the enlarger. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Thanks--I went to a local craft store and they'd never heard of it. Should a craft store normally stock this? Is there a similar product with a different brand name?

    Weather strip cement from the local auto parts store was recommended by a beseler tech.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    Pliobond is sold at most Ace Hardware stores.

    Hot glue gun will work too.

    Wouldn't the hot glue melt when the enlarger heats up ?

    Mr proslambanomenos, where are you situated ?

    Not unless you have a really high wattage lamp...
