Help! Need a Skiving Service?

Recommended Posts

I have a special project which requires a heavier leather than I carry in inventory. Unfortunately  the leather I required was not available in the weight and I was bit optimistic and ordered a heavier grade than I require and figured I could just skive the leather to the required thickness as needed. BIG MISTAKE.  The straps I have to produce are 3" x 6'.

After a test with a sample strip of the heavy leather on my 6" manual Tandy skiver I realized this was a pipe dream. 

Anyone know of a skiving service that could handle a 25 ft2 side of Vegtan or possibly 6" strips?

I have received email from Tandy indicating they have equipment you can use at some of the locations. A splitter was mentioned along with sewing machines. Worth checking out.
