Could someone please count the number of pleats and metal hooks on an FP2 500mm X axis bellows? I am on the road so can not do it myself. I have been offered a spare bellows but need to figure out if they are for 400 or 500mm travel machines.
 
There are 22 pleats total, that includes the two ends (one sided) that carry the snaps.
So 20 double sided and 2 single side pleats.
Sorry i just saw this, e-mail would have been quicker

one i am looking at has 25 ‘peaks’ plus two end plates
 
Mine goes reasonably tight at full table travel, almost flat.....Nerver had any issues with it being too tight.
More peaks+ longer would not hurt. Longer or shorter, if it works at full travel then i think it would be fine.
All would compress to the same relative compressed distance no matter what travel the machine had.
