I've just listened to a chap using 'leather filler' on a damaged leather chair back--he nearly talked me back to sleep but I persevered. I do cling to the thought that my chap may have had to do with the manufacturing side of leather wear more than selling. Probably because so many rellies were so occupied. Yesterday i read something about fillers to do with decorations on leather & ofcourse didn't keep it to hand. Not good on long searches at the mo'. "Leather Currier : Tanned leather by incorporating oil or grease " if skins were damaged would they have had to repair / fill in cracks or damaged areas? I probably won't go to the extent of looking for an expert in this field but will always wonder I think. Having just re read posts from yesterday-so long ago- I can now see that he didn't have to be one to be one. Member that is . I can let him rest in there now as I don''t think he had very long left to so do.
