Soft tanning beaver

I shave my beavers as thin as I can without cutting them up but can't get a real soft finished product even when I use soft tanning oil and drum. Any suggestions? I tan with Lutan F but have also used Liqua Tan etc. I pickle with Acid Bath Crystals.

How big is your drum?

Tans only get soft after having been broken. If your drum isn't large enough, they never break fully. Break them by hand.
