Resuscitating Old Bag

NO.  I am not trying to bring my mother-in-law back to life.
Found old leather bag - probably from the 60's - the bag part is in pretty good nick after some treatment with Oakwood Leather Conditioner.
However, the shoulder strap, bottom storage compartment and other bits are non-recoverable.
Removed the bottom compartment, and will attach the two 4mm stainless wire eye straps to the 20x10x2 rectangular tube, and put the tube inside the bag.  The top eye will sit through the existing ring, and the bottom eye will come out where the original shoulder strap was fixed.  The tube will be the full length of the bag, so that when lifted, the weight will be on the tube, rather than the bag.
The new shoulder strap is from a later bag and has clips on each end.

Re: Resuscitating Old Bag

I think I can see what you are doing here, but my non-engineering brain is struggling with the measurements of the rectangular tube. Is that it laying next to the bag?


Gone golfing - be back at dark thirty.

Re: Resuscitating Old Bag

Finishing Touch.
The dividing strap was missing from the bag.
Wife says: "I've lost my best brown leather belt somewhere".
Wife also says:  "The shoulder pad off the seat belt on my side of the car has disappeared"...................
