He would probably be willing to send you instructions. Or he may tell you
over the phone. I dry salt mine but others just skin,rough flesh and throw it in the tanner.
If you are using the type of crystals that come with the tanner you use
1 lb. of crystals per 1 gallon of water. Some people have tweeked the
mixes for better stretch though. After you rough flesh the skins and tan them for 2 hours take
it out and shave it down thin and then throw it back in the tanner for another hour.
Also in case you do not know this you pressurize the tank to 50 lbs psi.
