Do you have any experience with this? Is it simple enough to do on your own?

I had an old pair re-palmed through a family friend, I was pretty happy with the results. I don't have any before pics but I can post some after pics tomorrow and get you in contact with the person if you like the way they look. I can't remember if he lives on LI or in the city, though.

Yea that would be great if you could, i know i can send it out to get them done good, but i'd like to have it done asap if possible, thanks in advance.

A lot of people swear by Peach's and/or George's

No, I'm afraid I don't have any experience with it but I am currently awaiting a kit for my spare gloves.

George's does a great job (they are a couple miles from my house) but I have never liked the way gloves feel differently after a re-palming. The fit changes a little. The first pair I had done felt too loose afterwards and the second pair I had done felt "off", like the fingers or palm had a different cut. But I'm super picky about my gloves and how they feel.

anything done by Peaches isn't likely to be quick. he took a job (according to JR over at MSH) as the Portland Winterhawks EQM so even though he's still re-palming I suspect it'll take longer.

Yeah I read that. My store ships repalmings over to T & L, but that's in Canada obviously. Decent work
