Bellows Paper Glue


Recommended Posts

Hi all. I'm planning to put new bellows papers on a Lachenal 20 key anglo and I'm wondering if some of the experienced restorers here could advise which would be best glue to use.   I'm thinking likely candidates would be PVA craft glue, wallpaper glue or even simple flour and water glue. I'm aware that repairs to vintage instuments should ideally be reversible.  Can anybody advise which of these glues is best for the job, or if there is a better alternative.  Thanks in advance.  John

I would wonder if using  a PVA archival grade glue would be good if you are going PVA, the price difference between the craft stuff and the archival grade is not that significant.  It is formulated to have a neutral PH.
