jrts does'nt seem to be a "cream"

Submitted by red on 2/23/06 at 9:42 PM. ( )

I just got some & it's not really cream, more like heavy water. Has it always been like that or did they change the formula? I plan on using it like George R does. Turn,salt,rinse,final flesh,tan,wash,mount. George if you read this...isn't this the way you do it? It says on the bottle to use endol to mothproof.What's that about? George give me some direction.

I flesh, salt, rinse, tan, wash, spin dry, towel dry the fleshy side, final shave and then mount.

If they've changed the formula, I haven't gotten to it yet. I order the stuff by the case and what I have is still the same. Did you shake the jug. The lanolin always settles in the bottom, but I never said it was a "cream" tan. It's a paint on, much like LiquiTan or McKenzie Tan. It looks like Kalua and milk when mixed properly and it smells like lanolin.

Oops. Forgot.

I don't think Endol is available in the US without a license. Maybe, but instead, during my final wash after it's been tanned,I use Knobloch's ProTex PreSoak. It has bug proofing qualities in it.

i dont know what the old stuff was if it changed but

the new stuff if it has changed works fine
and im not pickling like George
it has a great amount of stretch compaired to any submersible that needs to be neutralized
i use the stop rot up front with it and soak in wtds leatherizing acid for 30 min. in a strong brine
