Is oiling used for mounting or for making a rug?

if a hide is to be thoroughly processed for whatever reason. To have a quality, durable leather {hide} as an end result, it must be oiled, it's all part of the tanning process

the difference from wet tan to dry tan is the oilling stage.Wet tan you do not need to oil,always depends your tanning process,spray tan,liquid tan,or the proper way of tanning.
If spray tan,or liquid tan was the best way to tan,would you not think that fur dresser would use the same process,you do the math.

That is not exactly true. Some wet tans do have an oiling step in their process. Albeit a very water soluble oil that doesn't prevent the take-up of other chemistry by the hide. Correct about tanners all doing different things though. More than one way to skin a cat.
