My father saw me breaking a deer hide, and thought there must be an easier way, suggesting an old washing machien roller. I told him that that would damage the hair, and that it just takes a lot of working/sanding to make a fur a fur. Is there an easier way? chemical or leather softener?

Bruce Rittel said that it had to drop from a drum 6 or 8 feet in diameter I think. Washing machines don't cut it. That's why the BEST/CHEAPEST way for most of us is to send it to a commercial tannery that has the facilities and the equipment to do it. Otherwise, keep breaking.


ok
