Jig for Bellows Repair?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

What do the pros use to hold (old) bellows open, to leave both hands free for internal repair? (p.s. 'Spouse' is not a useful answer.)

I'm not a pro but a carefully cut piece of timber will fit snuggly inside the bellows and prevent them from closing.

Oops, sorry, you say for internal repair? Make two U shaped bits of timber that will slide into the valley of the two outer folds next to the bellows frames. Cut two bits of timber to wedge between the frames you have fitted, long enough to hold the bellows at full stretch without undue stress.
