Does anyone know of a source for bellows to fit a Crown Graphic 23?
Thanks,
Gerry

Gerry,
What is wrong with the bellows?

Hi Dave,
The inner and outer bellows separated at one fold. It hung down some, unless fully extended. I got a tip on using a hypodermic to inject adhesive between the inner and outer shells. I did that and it seems to have worked. I am going to run some film thru it, as soon as the weather improves some. It's rainy and chilly here! Mid August and supposed to be summer. Anyway, if this works, I'll probably just go with that fix. If not, I guess try and find a bellows.

That's a common problem with the 2x3 Pacemakers. I had a speed Graphic with the same problem. Contact Cement is the best fix. Has lasted several years with no problems. It is easier to get to that seam if you fold down the infinity stops and take the front standard off of the rails.

Glad to hear that. I used Pliobond, which, I think, is the same as contact cement.

Restless1;

You are right. Pliobond is a specific brand of contact cement.
