One source for thinned leather is located in New York State. You can
send whole skins for thinning to the thickness of your choice to the
following address:

    Hohenforst Splitting
    152 West Fulton Street
    Gloversville, NY  12078
    Fax: 518-762-5589

The cost is approximately $25 for three skins.
