Stabilizing/repairing dry rot?

Postby Sarge6 » January 20th, 2021, 11:19 am

I'm working on a glove that was heavily coated in grime but still solid. Not a Holy Grail find but top shelf for my collection at least. Unfortunately once the grime came off there were a couple of small dry rot patches at the finger crotches that dissolved when they got the cleaner/conditioner. Only thing I can think of to repair and stabilize the holes is a little bit of leather putty and glue. But before I do it I thought I'd see what else might work.
"So. It seems like you're in trouble."
"Yes, Babe Ruth signed that ball."
"George signed this?"
"George Herman Ruth? Yes."
"I take it back. You're not in trouble, you're dead where you stand."
