Remedy for broken Cheyenne roll?

Recommended Posts

A client has a saddle with a Cheyenne roll that is broken on the right third of length. It looks good until you pick up the saddle w the roll. Seat leather, or at least the padded seat cover, is intact.  Its broken, separated, at the fold. Other than rebuilding the roll is there a quick fix? I thought putting a bead of Liquid Nails into the broken fold might stabilize it at something less than full strength. Got any better ideas, or think the glue wont work? -John

hard to visualize. If there were a filler in there (attached to the tree) and a join in that is separated, at any rate, glue just sounds like a 'hail Mary'.

If baling wire won't fix it, it is beyond repair........LOL

It sounds like to me that the saddle was made using cardboard as a filler and not leather.  I have worked on saddles that had the same problem, but the owner was willing to pay to have the padded seat replaced, and at the same time I repaired the problem.  I agree with Ole Toot, glue won't do much.

If you can't fix it with baling wire or duct tape, you have an electrical problem...

and don't forget cable ties and chewing gum, and raw eggs

Stopped a leaky radiator in friend's vintage car during a rally by putting a raw egg into it. When the egg cooked it blocked up the hole. Only a temp fix though, and it eventually stinks
