    any body know what glue to use for linhof leather thats coming off?

    Any body know what glue they originally used and what might be good to use when that stuff stops working. Also, does anybody know were one can get pieces of that material?

    Contact cement is best, you can get it at nearly any hardware store. Just apply to both the metal and the leather, let dry then press together. It usually is best to remove the piece of leather completely and scrape off most of the old glue before you apply more --this will prevent poor adhesion as well as having lumps of glue under the leather.

    Microtools has some replacement leatherette, but it's hard to find a good match for original leather

    cheers

    The suitable cement is called "Hirschkleber" although "bone glue" is probably also well suited. Contact cement is NOT what you want to use.

    Mercy me, I have done a lot of leather glue ups on some mighty fine equipment, and contact cement has always worked just fine. Make the repair once and forget it. Contact cement named Barge, Tandy leather, or just about anything you can find at a hardware store will work perfectly.
    No point making a mountain out of a mole hill, just get it done.

    I like Pliobond for regluing camera leather and leatherette. It stays flexible when dry and can be removed, if the camera needs to be repaired.

    Probably rabbit glue, still available at VERY old-fashioned ironmongers and artists' colourmen.

    Cheers,

    Gluin' rabbits together ain't the problem; it's gettin' them apart...

    Anyone can appreciate a fine print. But it takes a real photographer to appreciate a fine negative.

    Rabbit hide glue is quite good but I think a bit too much for the application. Its got a Bloomgrams in the ballpark of 400. That's great for wood but a bit much for thin leather. Bone glue is in the 100 range and its also better to move into small areas..

    I use the "Hirschkleber" stuff.. its standard here in glueing shoe linings to uppers and move convienient that messing with a glue pot..
