Examine Bellows Cloth Before Using It
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  It's said that a picture is worth a thousand words, so,
I took a couple of pictures to illustrate just how deceptive bellows
cloth can be.

The cloth in the picture "looks" like it's in great shape.  It's
relatively supple and appears air tight.  However, once it was removed
and examined under a bright light, it was very obvious that it was
anything but air tight.

My point is simple.  You can't trust what you see or feel from the
outside.  You must run tests to determine the quality of bellows cloth.
