Here is the deal, I have the chance to purchase a used auto tanner for a decent price.
I looked at it and needless to say I was a little dissapointed. I did
not realize how small the thing actually is. What I need advice on
is this. Do you all that use one think it would be a good buy for a taxidermist
who averages 6 to 7 deer a year? I take in more fish than anything but
have been working on doing some more mammals. I know it would be
a personal decision but wanted a little input from some of you guys and gals.

You can tan 10 hides and have them shaved by Wednesday evening. Then you could of course have that 10 mounted by the following Friday a week later. less finish work. You could have 10 deer from skinned to delivered with in 20 days.
you figure what you would make? or $$$$. I would not be without mine, hell I know someone who abused mine and did most of his deer for the year over a three week period, his mounts lack some quality but he still got then done. He did about 40 in thirty days.
I have found that skins tend to let out nicely and a 22 inch deer will easily fit a 22 inch form, I have seen some let out from 20 to 23, I dont like to do that with a deer, I also have not used any of the urethane glues with that tan, I would not be without mine.
You can put a green bellied carnivore in it and it will tan it for you. Shoul dyou over tan alittle clear cool water will relax it. The small machine is a bit tight for elk but can be done. 2-3 deer work in it well. E-mail me if you need more info. John C
with John. I love my tanner. I'm using the new tan they came out with
and I love it. Minimal shrinkage also locks in the hair.
Gotta go along with John and Art. I love mine and would'nt be without it. No waiting for skins to or from tannery. Quicker turn around time means more $$$. Don't think you would be disapointed on purchasing one Todd.
