  • I am Trying an Experiment for the LEATHER

    I make a product that was used to restore (make flexible again) on the Leather from 1903 Cars and Sunken Boats. It will put the life back into the leather VALVES I hope.
    I am working of the assumption that the leather at one time was SOFT and PLIABLE. If it is NOT supposed to be soft PLEASE yell at me
    Thank You

    I am not trying to sell you anything but if this works I see where it might be of help. This has NO OILS in it at all.

    For flap valves, the leather needs to have some stretch to it, unless the valves are mounted to springs or weights.

      No springs or weight. They are Nailed on each end only. If this works I will not have to take them out at all. We salvaged a Doctors Bag, not us but the finders, and it became useable to the point it would open and close with out tearing.

        I have on occasion smeared some cream called Dubbin on valves I could get to without dismantling the reservoir. This stuff is absorbed better into the leather if it is exposed to direct sunlight. Removing them completely also offers the facility to stretch them more tightly over the openings when re-fitting. They are normally just tacked on with shoe tacks. It worked OK for me and still does after more than a year. However, I do not think that this is a lasting remedy especially on some leathers that are perhaps a century old.... Replacing them might be the more permanent solution.

          This is my test bed. Since I am not a sponsor of this forum, My Background is Own www.leatherique and my dad developed the formula for The product I will use.
          This is a rub on or brush on product that does not require anything but about 12 to 24 hours to work.NO Petroleum in it at all.
          All the leather WWII jackets at a museum use it. I do not use the names of our customers since they are private in some cases.
          Will apply some today and see where it takes me.
          Take Care
