    I have found that neets foot oil works well with about any kind of tanning and can be bought at about any TSC feed mill or tack shop. :)

  3. Neatsfoot oil is not a tanning oil! Use Knoblochs No 1 or 2 tanning oil

    Bruce Rittels Pro Plue oil, I like better than 1 or 2 of Knob's.

    correction, Pro Plus oil

    I always used EUREKA 800-R oil back when I did taxidermy work.
    Mix Rate
    One part oil
    Three parts hot water
    Put mix in spray bottle and spray on cape and rub in with gloved hand.
    Never had a problem with this oil with lutan f

    I use mink oil that I get from the tannery , maybe try bying your tanning supplies from a tannery , you may save money , mink oil works very good.

    Use the Tanning oil #1 that we make here, you will like it, use it straight do not cut it with water. Drain skin well overnight then oil. Contact us if you would like some more pointers, we sell this product to a lot of commercial tanneries.
