Rod Pearce Posted January 1, 2020 Share Posted January 1, 2020 I am having my first go at making a bellows for an Anglo concertina. I have tried to repair leaks in the existing one several times but just keep finding more. It seems too far gone. I have gathered most of the materials, cut the card and built a jig for the assembly. The only thing I am short of at the moment is the leather, and am planning to use black goatskin from Pittards. I have lined up a 0.9mm skin. I have been trying to get an idea of the thickness of leather needed for the various leather components ( gusset, top run, end run, valleys) but all I can find is a lot of references to the edges needing to be skived to 0.01mm. Can anyone advise what the thickness of the body leather for each of the components should be? Thanks Rod Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
