On my recording king I glue some small bits of chamois material over the pins holes from the inside, it worked wonders on tightening things up.

Yes, thin soft leather glued from inside. Chamois is suitably soft, but can be porous so there are better materials. The leather diamonds sold by Charlie would be better, but will need to be cut to size.

Thanks Theo, that's exactly what I wanted to do. Glued with what adhesive?

I use the same glue, though my aversion to Amazon means I get it locally from the excellent Le Prevo leather in Newcastle who can supply just about anything for leather work. http://www.leprevo.co.uk/photos/leathercraft-cement.htm

My mother has a 'make do and mend' needlework volume. The 'underwear' section contains instructions for 'darning your gusset'. Is this appropriate?

Fits in well with the reaction I got chez nous, when I said I had a leaky gusset.

Yes diamond shaped area between card board openings in bellows corners, also apparently a portion of underwear where leaks may occur.

What caused me to ask was . . . . .  pin holes from the inside . . .    ?

Well the pin holes went right though and I repaired them from the inside.

(Pin holes weren't made by pins (:)) they were just there when I got the box and probably due to wear.


Yes, thin soft leather glued from inside. Chamois is suitably soft, but can be porous so there are better materials. The leather diamonds sold by Charlie would be better, but will need to be cut to size.
I just happen to have some so I used it and figure the glue would provide a seal to the porous material.
Probably a bit of  corner cutting (pun intended) on my part and I should have got the right stuff.
It seems to have done the trick, I guess time will tell if it last.

Right I'm doing the glue in leather diamonds to the inside game. I'm also glueing little diamonds on the outside, cut to the same shape as the leather showing at the corner.. I have found that  one of the large pieces supplied by CGM makes 4 pieces for the inside, and one of those makes 4 wee diamonds that fit the gap on the outside.
What a fiddly blinking job it is!

Only on a melodeon forum would a topic entitled 'Replacing leaky gussets' be deemed SFW  ::)

Recently we've also had, fingering, and at the moment we have, playing with friends, but to the pure of mind all things are pure.

'Safe for Work'
More often found in its inverse abbreviation, as in 'Warning: NSFW', implying you wouldn't want it on your screen when your colleagues/boss walked past...

Thanks Anahata, that would be a completely foreign situation for the likes of me! I suppose many groups use abbreviations which are specific to themselves.

Exactly, Sir John.
But it's good you can come here for therapy, we're all in the same boat, after all. More tea, anyone?
