Hi, I am not new to tanning hides, however I'm always willing to learn,...I tan with lutan-f, has anyone experimented with double oiling, in other words just as as the first oiling is starting to show dry spots, reoil at that time and work it a little, just wondering if this would help get a slightly larger stretchier cape, has anyone tried it? Thanks,...Dan.

I just finished a bear rug with no head or feet, just hide that customer wanted soft. I would oil it and tumble the next day then stretch for couple days and re-oil,tumble next day, stretch for day. Did this three or times and hide was flexible with no breaking involved. Just oil and let soak in before tumbling.
If you have to double oil - get a new oil! The one you have isnt doing its job if it requires being applied more than once.
