I'm working on a MG34 Lafette tripod, which is now complete except the pads & padding. Anyone have a set of pads? I see on ebay there is someone selling repo leather. Any tips on "aging" new leather so it looks more period?

Get them wet, put them in a plastic garment bag with a little room for air, and hide them some where. Find them in a month and start scraping the mold off and enjoying the staining and dryness. j

34/42 Lafette mount

I would like to find the pads as well and the ones on Ebay don't look right on how they have the corners stitch together and I would like to find the correct range guide chart as will I am working with a Nazi NC /1944 mount would like to restore it this winter.

Thanks Ed
