I had to replace the apron when I bought my older/used bench and I
found some great faux leather at Jo-Ann Fabric. Its thinner and more
supple than pleather. & it was cheap! Its working great so far…
Its probably not as impermeable as leather or pleather, but I don’t
work with much gold and the fabric is cheap enough to just send the
whole thing to the refiners with the sweeps.
