Hello I'm trying replace the synthetic leather gusset for some concertinas. That is success, but I don't like the finish of the bellows apex. That model is like traditional Wheatstone, Lachenal, other modern concertina makers. These instruments have leather tape glued to the bellows in a smooth circular motion. I first modeled was Stagi, which simply folded in leather tape flap, I repaired for the first time. The second time I opened flaps in two and folded it. I use 20mm wide leather tape. How to smooth the apex of the bellows?
Hello, When you cut leather, do you consider the part of body and the direction of cutting? If so, what are you doing? Generally, the back side is hard and the abdomen to the legs are soft. As for the direction, it's said that it don't stretch vertically from the head to the buttocks, but stretches horizontally. ex.
