Default Re: Seasoning Bellows-Blown Bag

I have never had to do anything on my own pipes. Here is what Hamish Moore says about his own bellows pipes:

"1. Airtightness. Never use a water based seasoning. If a dressing is needed at all then neatsfoot oil should be used either on its own or mixed with melted beeswax in a proportion of four parts oil to one of beeswax."

See Hamish's page:

But I would not do anything unless there is some evidence that seasoning is needed.

If a bagpipe makes a sound and no one hears it, is it still annoying?
