Bellows Cloth for Music Box Harmoniums
By Reg Smith

Has anyone had experience recovering the bellows on an "orchestral" type
cylinder music box (miniature reed organ/harmonium mounted beneath the
bedplate)?  This one has very thin leather which is dried up and
cracking at corners and seams...  I wonder if I should go back with thin
leather or would it be preferable to use a more modern material?  Any
suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
