Subject: RE: leaks fixed - cheap (recorder repair)
Well, interesting about the recorder--I have two larger recorders that the rubber band trick might help, but they also 'might' need some new cork...or the old trick of a few windings of thread around the cork.

(All the Wonder bread trick does is to allow moisture to be absorbed by the leather at a moderate rate. I do similar things to retain moisture in wood using just damp paper towels inside plastic bags, and there are special humidifiers for everything from tobacco to guitars. All that is needed is a way to provide water in a controlled release.)
