Some months back I remember someone posting here that they were
considering doing a run of this cloth, but needed enough orders.
Anyone know who that was or what stage the project is in?
I know there are 'modern materials' available, but they won't glue
with hide glue, and now PVC-E is apparently no longer available,
but another glue is available that is called 'Roo Glue' (yes, from
Australia -- but it doesn't contain any Kangaroo product).
Now, of course, the problem with either is that you have to make
new boards if you ever want to re-recover them. On the other hand,
that's likely to be done by someone after I'm gone. But still,
I like to "do no harm" when I restore stuff. And I worry that the
modern materials might be another Perflex disaster.
