Pouch Leather for Theme Valves
By Larry Broadmoore

In Digest 971204 Thomas Henden asked:

> Does anyone know where to buy small quantities of tan pouch leather,
> usable for the theme valves in the Duo-Art expression box?

Pouch leather of superb quality, in thicknesses down to .008 inch,
can be obtained from:

  Organ Supply Industries
  P.O. Box 8325
  Erie, PA  16505-0325
  (814) 835-2244 or (814) 864-3011 ; Fax: (814) 838-0349

If extra-thin material is desired, I have found that it is best to have
it hand selected by one of the resident experts at Organ Supply.

Pouch leather thicker than .010" is completely unsuitable for small
primary pouches such as those in the Ampico "A" (and it should not be
sealed if the pouch is this small).  Yet, unfortunately, leather this
thin is rarely used for such purposes.  Ampico secondaries also deserve
this thickness, but should be sealed.
