Hi All,

Any ideas on where a person could buy some of the fine (like paper-thin) leatherette used on the Ciro-Flex / Graflex cameras?

I have had some peel off, and can measure / design new templates in paper - but need to find some leatherette to replace what's fallen off in use.

or get some latex/neoprene based contact cement such as Elmers E-753 or Weldwood nonflamable contact cement and reglue the origional stuff back in place.

Thanks, to both of you.

I have some bits missing, so the new leatherette is the way for me. Can draw the shapes on CAD terminal, then cut just right.

Neat stuff on the cameraleather site. Colors, and they look darned good on the old cameras!

My dad is into Model T Fords, all were black, and I have the same reaction to colored classic cameras I have to red or green Fords... first a little nausea, then a "Well, heck - that looks sorta cool..."

Thanks again.
