leather for bellows

Postby pipergt » Tue Apr 10, 2012 8:38 pm

Hi All, Can anybody advise where suitable leather for NSP bellows can be obtained. The leather on my set is quite thick and makes for hard work in keeping the pressure up. The bellows have been made in the uillean design with the leather being nailed into groove round the edge of the wooden plates and not stiched through them as is the norm with NSP.

Can anyone give any advice on the replacement of the leather and the technique of doing it?
