In your video about your flesching machine do you talk about a Tanning formula that uses Formic acid, aluminium Sulfate, formol and Salt.

In ten gallons of water I add 6 pounds of salt or more, two onces of formic acid, Half a pound of aluminium sulfate (alum) diluted in a few cups of boilling water. If you wish to preserve it for a few months or more add two onces of formadehyde.
