Lachenal 79001 Restoration

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Starting with the bellows.  I’m not sure if I’m going to cut cards or fold them from one piece.  The original looked like separate cards until I got it apart and it’s scored and folded from one piece, not individual cards.

I have Lamb and Goatskin.  I used calf leather on my first set but think I’m going with goat on this one.

Is it an English? I have lots of Lachenal spares if you're short of anything.

It’s a 20 button Anglo.

 I have 3 20 button anglos and 1 MacCann Duet.  I appreciate the offer.  I do need to find replacement makers mark badges as the paper ones are missing.  I could scan one of my others and print a copy.

 

Here is a simple jig I made to make the bellows.

Getting the bellows slowly together.  Bottom runs are finished and I’m now doing the gussets.

I have a good maker's mark scan for Lachenal. Can be printed using a 'sepia' printer setting and then varnished over. If your Maccann system is a Lachenal, I have excellent gold blocked reproductions of the old wrist straps with the patent number.

The MacCann wrist wrap is not long for this world.  Where the leather bends it’s looking badly worn.  It is going to have to be replaced.  One of my four Lachenals has a good Makers mark and another has a crusty looking one.

 

Photos of the MacCann with the crustiest Makers label around.

Back to the Lachenal 79001.  Gussets all

finished and moving on to the top runs.  I also printed some decorative Lachenal bellow card labels from a file posted here on this forum.

May also be useful. Print in black onto gold A4 paper.

 

Thanks, I have seen those files.  I actually had the print shop do some cards for me this past weekend.

I have new wrist straps for this model.

What quality/weight of paper would you (or anyone else) recommend? Ta. Roger.
