Thread resurrection time!
I recently showed the Ikomat to a friend who commented that the leather bellows seemed a bit dry. Does anyone have any recommendations for a treatment to keep them healthy? I have some leather wipes (intended to be used on a sofa) and some saddle soap aerosol foam to hand which work on leather camera cases, but obviously this is a bit different.
The original cable release has also expired, thanks to the cloth covering finally breaking where it was crimped into the metal end piece (it was hanging by a few threads, which snapped on about the third use). This means that if you try to use the cable it just stretches the spring around the wire core rather than pressing the shutter. I have a couple of standard cable releases which fit the socket, but would obviously like to repair the original. Has anyone managed this?
