    I have run out of leather material for pump cups. What is a good source (cheap) of leather and what is the ideal thickness required. Prefer ideas from this side of the pond. Thanks.

    I'm a cheap tosser; hit the thrift stores for old leather coats or shoes, makes for a great donor for "repurposing" applications!

    Scraps are often available from boot/shoe makers or repairers if you have any nearby, likewise saddle makers.
