(back) Subject: Releathering stoppers From: "Robert W. Taylor" <rtaylor@sockets.net> Date: Thu, 27 Jun 2002 20:04:43 -0500   I would like input from the list on various ways to releather, or other material, the stoppers. I am finding that the leather I have on hand does not make for a tight fit. What other material can be used to build up the gap?   Bob Taylor
