    What kind of glue to repair leather on Kowa 6?

    I found a Kowa Six and the leather is curling in several places. What kind of glue should I use to re-glue it? Or should I send it somewhere? Who does this?

    thanks

    If the leather is intact and just needs to be stuck down again, double sided tape works well
    Adhesive, Tape Double Sided 2in x 60 yds.
    If the leather is torn, then something like pliobond Adhesive, Pliobond, 3oz Bottle or shellac can sometimes help.

    The standard adhesive used in the camera repair industry for attaching leatherette is
    Pliobond. It's readily available online and in some DIY stores.

    It is a very robust adhesive, works over a wide range of temperatures, and allows the
    leatherette to be removed for servicing in the future if needed without damage.
