    Beseler 23C II enlarger

    Help !

    I have a 23C II enlarger, and the bottom bellows broke away from the frame. The lens board end is secure it's the top where the bellows meets the bottom of the negative stage. It looks like it was originally glued in place. Anyone know what kind of glue would work the best.

    Thanks

    I had one do the same.
    Beseler tech recommended weather strip cement. Your local auto parts joint will have it.
    It does come in at least two colors,black and white.

    I use pliobond or similar to reattach bellows. Make sure you clean the old glue from around the stage and bellows prior to reattaching.

    3M also makes some very effective double sided tapes that might be viable. I have one that is like their 777 spray adhesive, but on a roll.

    I used to have a 23C, and I know exactly where you mean. Not very feasible to take apaprt; more of a fix in situ problem.
    my real name, imagine that.
