Auto Tanner

Submitted by Hiller on 7/30/99. ( )

Can anyone out there be willing to send me the instructions on how to build an auto tanner, or could you atleast give me an idea how it works maybe that'll will help, I'd like to have one around but I don't want to pay that much for one since I am just getting started, or does anyone know of an internet sight for the auto tanners
Thank You

I finally bought one. I love it. It's safe (very important), and I get business by offering a fast turn-around. I use 40 - 45 psi, and the store bought tanning machine claims to be tested to 200. It's very reliable. I'd have saved a lot had I purchased one first, rather then the tons of chemicals I have that I no longer use, and a large salt table I built.

I recently purchased one of the automatic tanners from Taxidermy Art Supplies. I was really impressed with it. I tanned an unsalted deer skin in the auto tanner, following the instructions that were supplied with the tanner. I tanned the skin for about twelve hours. After two hours, I shaved the skin and completed the tanning. It took about a pound-and-a-half of tan. I oiled the skin after I took it out of the tan. I let it dry for about an hour and then I threw it in a tumbler to clean the skin and the fur. Thereafter, I hung it up and let it dry. After it was dry, I put it my tumbler for an hour at a time. Also, I threw in a pair of old work boots; this helps break the skin while tumbling. I did this about four times; then I finished the skin with a wire brush; it came out almost as soft as a baby's bottom! I am very happy with my automatic tanner. It saves time and money on salt and chemicals. I would recommend the automatic tanner to anyone who wishes to save time and money on their home tanning.
