Bellows Replacement by Dan Mitchell

This is an excellent and very detailed book on how to make new bellows for folding cameras, view cameras, and other cameras that use flexible bellows. There are companies that will custom build new bellows for you, but they can be expensive.

This book's author, Dan Mitchell, has generously given us permission to share a PDF version of his book. A printed version is also available from Lulu. It is only $9.97, so please consider buying it if you find this PDF version useful.

Dan also has an illustrated bellows-making tutorial on his website! He also has a number of other useful camera repair tutorials on his site.

For the first five years that we operated this site, we were able to offer all of these manuals as free downloads. The site has gotten so large and popular that we are exceeding the limits of bandwidth and storage imposed by our web host. Please don't share these files; if we do not bring in enough revenue to pay to keep the site online, we will be forced to shut the site down. We've set the price low eough that it won't burden those who want to learn to repair cameras, while hopefully bringing in enough each month to keep the site open. We are not trying to make a profit from this.
