Tanning

Submitted by Steve on 2/14/00. ( ) 128.143.3.151

I would like to know what is the best type of saw dust to use for
tumbling the average hide (deer,bobcat,fox). I currently use a converted dyier and santichips saw dust. I have been having trouble
removing the dust form the flesh side of the capes.
I would also like to know how often to change the saw dust,and start
with fresh.

If you really want to get all the sawdust out...

you should build yourself a wire caging drum. This is a drum with a screened exterior. The hide tumbles in this and the sawdust is worked out and drops to the floor. Buckeye Mannikins sells a good grade of sawdust.
