  1. Hi The bellows backing is the color of the cardboard, so I put the leather itself, leather patterned paper, or patterned paper on top (because leather is more expensive than paper). I have used a variety of papers and fabrics (Liberty Print) when repairing gussets. I used fish glue to attach the paper. https://concertina.pinefield.asia/gusset-repairs-synthetic-leather-concertina-bellows-4/#完成 *If your concertina's gusset is made of synthetic leather, expect it to degrade and pit in 10 years due to moisture in the air. When you do that repair, you can change the paper.
  2. I also agree with this method. When you turn the end and action board upside down and put the button in the hole, you can see the gap where the skewer is inserted by shining light from the bottom.
  3. If it's the layout 'Non-transposed' that good for me Wheatstone & Co. Concertina Ledgers http://www.horniman.info/DKNSARC/SD02/PAGES/D2P0430S.HTM
  4. @David Lay Thanks for the helpful video. I also need this tuner. @wunks I found the video could show the Closed Captions, plese check the attachment.
  5. @TheoThanks,I was wondering if it was shipped with the wrong tuning at the time of manufacture. Because I heard that this instrument was purchased 15 years ago and hadn't been used much. I'll check the reed
  6. HOHNER English Concertina 48Key treble reveted action with accordion reeds. Push and pull should be F6, but E6 comes out by pushing. Can I tuning the reeds up one note? For this, I made a tuning bellows, but I have absolutely no skill in tuning.
  7. Hello, I found a post long ago in a search. Is this a concertina for this model? The bellows are not leather, like a paper. https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/hohner-concertina-c48-276900634
  8. Thanks, The product presented is for use at the top of the water crew handle. On other sites it was W3 / 16. I never thought I could use it like that. https://amzn.to/32YPfZy Too many pieces. ..
  9. I have a question about Strap screws and their female threads. Are they common ones available at DIY stores in the UK? https://concertina-spares.com/product/straps-screws/?v=3a52f3c22ed6 It seems that there is only one type in Japan, just because of the difference in screw diameter. https://www.yodobashi.com/product/100000001003884721/
  10. Hello I found the treble English concertina that at Wheatstone Ledgers. The ledger says "brass bound" and I didn't understand the meaning. And I found a this post of "brass bound" Here. I will post a picture of the instrument.
  11. It's interesting that about 100 years ago, an advertiser or someone ordered the English Concertina to draw an illustration upside down and put up an ad.
  12. Is fish glue so popular that it's easy to get? In Japan, it was only sold at art supplies stores.
  13. This bellows is designed with sharp apex corners. In that case, I found that the leather tape could not be folded smoothly. Looking at Alex Holden's production process, the corners of the bellows apex are rounded. https://www.instagram.com/p/CEmL7LqjZTL/ Therefore, I tried to stretch and bind the leather tape as much as possible. As a result, I managed to make the crease flaps small enough to make them inconspicuous.
  14. Hello I found a cheap class of "SCARLATTI" English concertinas on ebay. The bellows look like leather, thumb strap like Trinity, End looks like Stagi. I've never seen that. https://www.ebay.com/itm/294293331279
