Tim, Springfield Leather usually has a scrap bin, so you might call and talk to them to see about that or if they might sell less. I bought a couple square feet some 15 years ago and still have a little, having used it for mallet faces, stropping leather and as a liner for the wood jaws on the machine vise I use for gunsmithing, among other things—great stuff! As for tack shops, you never know unless you ask (despite your clever pun)—they may be glad to sell some scrap they were just going to throw away. Good luck, John.

P.S. Springfield Leather also sells a professional, shoe grade, rubber leather cement that can’t be beat, I’ve used it without any complaints or failures—even used it to re-cement the soles on a pair of shoes that came loose after being “re-crafted” by Allen Edmonds last summer.
