    Question for the leather workers here

    In a non firearm related project I'm doing I'm looking for a kind of leather we used to use for traditional chafing gear on boats. We used to use red chrome tanned of about 6 to 8 Oz weight. It was tough and more durable and abrasion resistant than anything else around. Of course it was 10 years ago that I last bought any and now I can't find a source for it. Any ideas were I can find some pieces? I don't need a whole hide.....

    How much leather are you looking for? Any particular color? I only charge $40/sq ft. (Just kidding.) Give me a shout and I can let you know if I have anything that you might be able to use. Or if you have the opportunity - come by the shop one day and you can pick through what might work for you. There's also the Tandy/Leather Factory store in Winter Park, and another one over here in the Tampa area. Sometimes they'll have some scrap pieces that might be enough for you.
